CGIAR Systems Accelerator Delivering Climate-Smart Innovations at Scale.
DEADLINE:December 22, 2022
Are you an agribusiness with a climate-smart innovation that tackles food insecurity and increases resilience in the East and Southern Africa region? Apply to our program to receive tailor-made support as well as access to finance to bring your innovations to scale.
Climate change continues to pose a real threat to food production in East and Southern Africa (ESA). Lack of resilience to climate change, fragmented agri-food value chains, a growing population, food shortages and rising food prices are further undermining food and nutrition security.
The CGIAR Food Systems Accelerator aims to support agribusinesses in scaling their climate smart innovations. These innovations are aimed at agrifood actors to solve pressing problems in the value chains and contribute to stronger and more sustainable food systems.

SDG 13: The Programme provides SMEs with access to science-based research and innovation which enhances their capacities to make smallholder farmers, local communities, and partners resilient to the effects of climate change.
