For Concern, it is not just about promoting
improvements in crop yields (or even reducing
the seasonal variability of these) – we also want
to see a stronger link between Climate Smart Agriculture and nutritional outcomes.

Concern's approach to Climate Smart Agriculture is informed by our understanding of extreme poverty – recognising that extremely poor people often have few
assets, gain poor returns on those assets, experience wide-ranging structural inequalities and are exposed to risks and vulnerabilities in many shapes and forms
