Promoting Enabling Environments. Our policy and framework activities focus on:

Innovating Agricultural Business Models. Our innovation models in Malawi focus on:
- Gender transformative regional seed systems for CSA. We’re working with women-owned seed companies in Malawi (and Zambia) to promote access to high-quality legume seeds, training in CSA practices to increase quantity and quality of their yields and support on seed buying and trade.
- Increasing Climate Resilience through dairy development for smallholder farmers. We’re working with dairy farmers in Malawi to promote Climate Smart Agriculture practices and technologies that improve the quantity and quality of milk production. These type of practices include hydroponic fodder growth systems and biogas digesters.
