This Plan Vivo certified project supports smallholder coffee farmers in Karagwe and Kyerwa districts. The projects helps smallholders overcome low productivity and crop loss from climate change by transitioning from cultivated land to agroforestry. Farmers are rewarded for their sustainable change in farming practices with increased crop yield, food security, and income diversification. The environment also thrives under such an agroforestry system, resulting in healthier soils and enhanced biodiversity.
