One Acre Fund – connecting climate financing with the people who need it the most

Meet Patricia 👩🏿‍🌾


As a smallholder farmer in Rwanda, her entire livelihood derives from less than one acre of land, and she depends on rain-fed agriculture to feed her family. Intensifying climate change — which brings floods, drought, pests, and more — now regularly threatens her harvests, putting her family’s future in jeopardy.

Meanwhile, as the climate crisis takes center stage across the world, both demand and funding for climate solutions have grown. Carbon markets alone will be worth an estimated $50 billion by 2030.

This presents an exciting opportunity for farmers like Patricia — if we can make carbon markets more inclusive.

One Acre Fund is dedicated to bridging the gap between farmers — who are on the front lines of climate change — and climate financing. One Acre Fund is now launching a portfolio of inclusive carbon projects that will improve farm livelihoods while driving environmental outcomes, sustainably and at scale.
