Grants to USA, Canada, and International individuals from diverse backgrounds and institutions of higher education to research the impact of climate change on farmers in India, Kenya, and Bangladesh. Funding is intended to address ways in which climate-smart agriculture can influence productivity, livestock growth, and greenhouse gas emissions.

Climate change is likely to cause considerable declines in crop yields, with the most detrimental losses affecting smallholder farmers in developing countries. Climate-smart agriculture is a farming approach that increases agricultural productivity, adapts crops and livestock to grow in changing climates and mitigates greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A variety of climate-smart agriculture farming practices and technologies exist; however, adoption of these practices among smallholder farmers is low, particularly in developing countries.

The Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research (FFAR) and Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture invite institutions to submit a written proposal to provide analyses that increase understanding of the climate-smart agriculture policy ecosystem and implementation across India, Kenya and Bangladesh. This request seeks information on key climate-smart agriculture trends and country-specific case studies on incentive mechanisms and their effectiveness in these countries.
