About CSA Programme:
The Climate Smart
Agriculture (CSA) Programme is a 5-year, €39 million project being implemented
in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. 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 will work
with and through the private sector and supports public sector partners in
creating an institutional environment for wide-scale adoption of CSA-practices.
It is driven by 3 pillars: i) adoption of CSA practices & technologies in
arable crop production farming systems; ii) acceleration of investments and
business growth in selected value chains; iii) improved enabling environment
for scaling out of CSA. Interventions are centered on business cases which are
derived from a thorough climate risk assessment and financial analysis of value
chains in pulses, oilseeds, potatoes and grains. A climate smart business case
matching grant facility aims to further improve access to finance and
facilitate scaling. The programme 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).
