WFP Launches Agricultural Innovation Program to Address Climate Change

The World Food Programme (WFP) has announced the launch of the Agricultural Innovation for Climate Resilience Programme (AICR). A partnership between the WFP Innovation Accelerator and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), this accelerator programme aims to identify scalable innovative solutions to mitigate the effects of climate change on low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). With agriculture being adversely affected by climate change, the AICR programme will provide financial, technical, and methodological support to early-stage ventures and solution providers that promote resource-efficient farming in LMICs. The programme seeks to address issues such as change in precipitation patterns, extreme weather events, pests, and diseases, which pose enormous challenges to smallholder farmers. The AICR programme will play a critical role in protecting natural resources, improving food security, and stimulating growth and jobs in the rural sector. The WFP aims to support agro entrepreneurs addressing resource efficient farming in LMICs and collaborate with talented individuals globally to drive climate resilience.
