Cauca leads climate smartness for agriculture in Colombia reaching 150,000 farmers
In 2017, CCAFS, Ecohabitats Foundation and rural communities collaborated to promote the Climate-Smart Villages (CSVs) in Cauca, Colombia. This led to an investment of USD 66 million from the Royalties National Fund to scale climate-smart agriculture (CSA) in at least 8 municipalities.
CSA practices have potentially reached over 150,000 farmers to date, and the CSV in Cauca is now widely known in other countries through South-South exchanges that have been carried out. Cauca's Environmental Authority is slated to receive USD 66 million to further scale out CSA in the region.
