Food Security

The majority of the world’s poor live in rural areas in developing countries. Close to 1 billion people are suffering from hunger. A large part of them are small-scale farmers, or others whose livelihood depend on land and agriculture in developing countries (ref.).


Climate Robust Farming

Small-scale farmers increasingly experience unpredictable and severe weather. This means higher risk of reduced production and crop failure. As a result, they can be caught in chronic poverty, indebtedness and eventually complex social problems.


Policy and Advocacy

The Development Fund is directly involved in international and national policy and advocacy work related to our programmes and our stakeholders. Changes in national and international policies and frameworks are essential in order to ensure a sustainable future for small scale farmers.
