About this session
How can we leverage the potential of carbon markets to enable smallholders to transition to agroforestry at scale? Smallholders are responsible for 80% of human-consumed food production but are hit hardest by climate change despite having contributed little to it. Furthermore, smallholders lack access to traditional financial means to diversify their business model, become more climate resilient & improve their livelihoods. As just 1.7% of current climate finance flows to smallholders, we need new solutions. Projects making use of carbon finance have a lot of potentials if implemented well. In this session, Acorn (Rabobank) and One Acre Fund discuss how.
