FAR Programme vision and objectives

The vision of the FAR Programme was stable availability of and access to food for 30,000 - 45,000 families of semi-subsistence and semi-commercial smallholders (of which 50% are female) through climate-resilient agriculture, production, value chain integration and income diversification.

Addressing food security and resilience - FAR’s Theory of Change

To make the vision a reality and to improve food security, adaptation, and resilience to climate change for smallholder farmers, FAR shared 3 key results:

OUTCOME 1: Stable availability of food

  • Increased productivity and production of staple food crops through CSA solutions adopted by smallholder farmers increasing their adaptive capacity to cope with climate change impacts.

OUTCOME 2: Stable access to food

  • Increased income through diversification and access to funding for smallholder farmers to improve their absorptive capacity and guarantee access to food beyond own subsistence production.

OUTCOME 3: Identification and dissemination models for CSA Solutions

  • Improved identification and dissemination models for CSA solutions, as well as for market and climate information among smallholder farmers, through private and public players.
