Building Climate-Smart Integrated Agriculture for Smallholder Farmers

Increasing the resilience of smallholder farmers

The project aims to increase the resilience of smallholder farmers by building climate-smart integrated agriculture through the establishment of social capital, adoption of improved agri-allied practices, promotion of collectives in an entrepreneurial way, and enabling the ecosystem resulting in increased income for smallholder farmers.

This HDFC funded CSR project is being implemented in three states of India – Punjab, Gujarat, and Madhya Pradesh. In all three locations, the smallholder farmers face common challenges around agriculture like the decline in crop production due to adoption of a conventional package of practices, chemical-intensive and high cost of crop production, depletion of groundwater and scarcity of water for agriculture, post-harvest crop losses, weak market linkage, the decline in dairy production and improper livestock management practice.
