Climate change presents the single biggest threat to human development, and its widespread impacts disproportionately burden the poorest and most vulnerable households in fragile and developing contexts – particularly children and women.

Climate change has also been reducing crop yields, affecting the nutritional quality of major cereals. We are also in the midst of an unprecedented global hunger crisis.

Sustainable agriculture can be part of the solution. It can be harnessed to minimise and even soak up emissions and mitigate climate change. Sustainable agriculture can also build resilience by helping smallholder farmers and vulnerable communities adapt to the impact of climate change and be better prepared for future shocks.

Climate-smart agriculture (CSA) is an approach that helps guide the transformation of agrifood systems towards green and climate-resilient practices, thus contributing to children’s overall well-being.  This publication outlines World Vision's approach to CSA.
