Sustainable Agriculture

Good agricultural practice is key to achieving environmental sustainability as it is crucial that we find ways for farming to adapt and thrive under climate change.

Our approach to agriculture integrates water, land and ecosystem management at a landscape rather than individual level. We use ‘climate-smart agriculture’ (CSA) which is a range of farming techniques that sustainably increase productivity and system resilience while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This approach means that climate change adaptation and mitigation are always central to how we plan and invest in agricultural development.

The three objectives of climate-smart agriculture are: 

1. Increase agriculture production and incomes sustainably and equitably.
2. Help food systems and farming livelihoods to be more resilient.
3. Minimise agriculture greenhouse gases emissions.
