SOCODEVI and climate-smart agriculture

Pedro Rodriguez 25 April 2017

The agrifood sector is the focus of many support projects implemented by SOCODEVI. The rural communities that we support have few resources to prepare for climate change, or reduce its impact and adapt to it. For this reason, we take concrete action in our development efforts to reduce the vulnerability of populations to the impacts of climate change and maximize their resilience by enhancing their capacity and thus often mitigating the effects of climate change.
