Promotion of Smart Agriculture towards climate change and agro-ecology transition in West Africa (AIC)

Promotion of Smart Agriculture towards climate change and agro-ecology transition in West Africa (AIC): The Promotion of Smart Agriculture towards Climate Change and agro-ecology transition in West Africa (in French, “Agriculture Intelligente pour le Climat”, or AIC) is a regional initiative focused on Africa. The global objective is to support the transition towards agro-ecology in West Africa to reinforce the resilience of vulnerable populations. The initiative aims at the adoption of practices by 25 million households by 2025.

This initiative includes two steps: firstly, the spread of best practices through public policies (involvement of public services in charge of agricultural and environmental policies) and, subsequently, farmers' training and support by NGOs and producers (involvement of producer organisations and operators).
