Granjas saludables, agricultores prósperos

Agricultores resilientes

More than two billion people live and work on small family-run farms, producing palm oil, cocoa, rubber and other commodities that we use every day. It is in these farms that much of our world’s food is grown.

At the same time, smallholder farmers often work in dangerous conditions, lack proper training and produce low yields; all of which affect their livelihoods. This – along with globalisation, disease and pest outbreaks, and climate change – threatens the future of our farms, crops and commodities.

But we don’t see farmers as victims in need of aid. Rather, we see them as entrepreneurs who need support to bring their businesses, their farms, to life. We work with smallholders to empower them and improve their resilience, strengthen their connections with clients and their position in the supply chain; all on their own terms.

Hechos

Some studies suggest smallholder farmers provide up to 80% of the food supply in Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
About 43% of the agricultural labour force in developing countries is made up of women. This number goes up to almost 50% in Eastern and South-eastern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.
Smallholder farmers produce around 40% of Indonesia’s palm oil.

Our work

Our work to increase resilience among smallholder farmers has been ongoing since 2011. Today we work with farmers in the Dominican Republic, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Laos, Malaysia and Thailand. Our field teams live and work among the farmers, build trust with them and understand the local context of their lives. This approach informs strategies to address farmers' practical needs and enhance their social and environmental management. Key to these strategies is strengthening farmers' links to other parts of the supply chain, thereby supporting both farmers and their products.
