Farmerline: Empowering smallholder farmers and governments to create climate-resilient agribusinesses

04 Jun 2024 / The impact of climate change is impacting all sectors, with agriculture being particularly vulnerable, and a significant contributor to its exacerbation at the same time. The agricultural sector alone is indeed responsible for 19 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions, totalling 9.9 billion tons of CO2e annually.    Agriculture is a major industry in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and Uganda, with up to 80 percent of farmland managed by smallholder farmers, who are highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, with wide-ranging supply chain impacts.

Some 2.8 billion people cook their daily meals with such biomass. Kenya is no exception: more than 80 per cent of Kenya’s population uses biomass for cooking and heating. The combustion of these materials during cooking releases greenhouse gases (GHG).
