Revenue diversification pathways in Africa through bio-based and circular agricultural innovations

Project description

Cultivating new sustainable paths for small farms

Smallholder farmers are most exposed to food insecurity, migration, and unsustainable practices. In Sub-Saharan Africa, for instance, farmers are particularly vulnerable to climate change and fluctuations in seasonal rainfall. A consortium of European and African research and development (R&D) organisations have joined forces to address limitations of smallholder agricultural systems where farmers lack the means to invest in improving productivity. Under the EU-funded DIVAGRI project, they will test bio-based technologies and business solutions adapted to rural African contexts to improve farming practices, processing, and access to markets. It will advance the sector’s transition towards circular agriculture and bioeconomy by cultivating sustainable avenues for businesses, services, and value chains in support for rural communities.
