Background of the Project.
SNV is managing the Climate Smart Agriculture for Tomorrow (CRAFT) project. CRAFT is a 5-year, €36 million project being implemented in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The CRAFT project is implemented by a consortium consisting of SNV, Wageningen University & Research (WUR), the CGIAR research programme on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), Agriterra and Rabobank and is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (DGIS).
The project uses an inclusive Business Development approach to support the international and Dutch efforts on climate change and sustainable production in arable farming. The programme works with and through the private sector and supports public sector partners in creating an institutional environment for wide-scale adoption of CSA-practices. The interventions are centred on business cases which are derived from a thorough climate risk assessment and financial analysis of value chains in pulses, potatoes, oil seeds and grains.
Working with and through the private sector, CRAFT uses a facilitative approach to implement solutions that integrate improvements in food security with climate adaptation and mitigation of food crop production and supply systems. This, together with leveraged investment in interventions that promote market-driven adoption and scaling of inclusive climate-smart business developments enhances climate resilience along the selected agricultural value chain to increase productive capacity and incomes of Agribusinesses and smallholder farmers. CRAFT, under its Climate Innovations and Investment facility (CIIF), uses grants as an important tool used to achieve its goals.
