Build a more resilient, climate-smart, nutritious, gender-equitable, and viable agri-food production system. As a One CGIAR alliance the Initiative will:

  2. Increase skills of value chain actors in access to farm input markets, sustainable production, post-harvest handling, and consumption practices;
  3. Support balanced food baskets by promoting increased diversity of household production systems;
  4. Harness community action to implement large-scale climate-smart practices and reduce vulnerability to climate change;
  5. Improve youth engagement in agribusinesses and women and youth empowerment in developing local value chains.
  6. Develop sustainable, productive, diversified, and resilient food production landscapes with minimal impact on water, land, and nature;
