The INCREASE Project
The Increasing Climate Resilience in Energy & Agriculture Systems and Entrepreneurship project, initiated in January 2020 and slated for implementation until 31st December 2023, spans Eastern, Central, Lusaka, Northwestern, and Southern provinces in Zambia, targeting 11,300 smallholder farmers across cotton/legumes, dairy, and horticulture value chains. This project aims to enhance social, economic, environmental, and climate resilience and equity in agriculture and energy systems by bolstering the adaptive capacity of these systems.
The INCREASE project is structured around three primary outcomes:
1. Improvement of the income, food, and energy security for men, women, and youth farmers.
2. Increased business performance of the cotton, dairy, and horticulture value chains through Climate Smart (CS) investments in agriculture, water, and Renewable Energy (RE).
3. Improved performance of the enabling environment for identifying, developing, and scaling of markets for Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA), water, and RE practices (including opportunities for youth employment [OYE]).
