Food Security and Market Access
CARE aims to strengthen sustainable, climate-resilient small-scale agriculture systems to improve food security for communities of producers, workers and consumers. CARE works to build food and agriculture systems that are Sustainable, Productive and Profitable, Equitable and Resilient (SuPER). SuPER is a set of principles that guides CARE’s work on small-scale agriculture in a changing climate and articulates the outcomes that agriculture and food systems should deliver for small-scale food producers.
- The Sustainable, Productive, Equitable and Resilient (SuPER) principles form an integrated approach to strengthen sustainable smallholder agricultural systems.
- The Farmers’ Field and Business Schools focus on a learning-by-doing approach, putting farmers at the heart of learning and decision-making around new agricultural techniques.
- The paper Good Practices for Integrating Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in Climate-Smart Agriculture programmes can help develop climate-smart agriculture investments, projects and policies that are more gender-responsive.
