WHAT THE MIF IS DOING
Our goal is to promote Climate-Smart Agriculture in Latin America and the Caribbean. In order to achieve this we support innovations that explore new approaches, apply new technologies, or develop new markets. We seek to enhance agricultural production, strengthen elements in the agricultural value chain such as natural resource management, logistics, new products—from new crops to biofuels. We focus on three key aspects:
- Improving Productivity: Promoting technologies, processes, and practices that boost productivity and better integrate producers into value chains, allowing them to both seize market opportunities and enhance the sustainability of our natural, economic, and social resources.
- Mitigation: Supporting land management and other agricultural technologies and practices that reduce, avoid, or capture GHG emissions.
- Climate Change Adaptation: Helping understand the negative impacts of climate change and taking actions to prevent or minimize the damage caused.
