Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) is an approach aimed at increasing farm productivity sustainably, taking into consideration climate change concerns and impacts. More specifically, the World Bank defines Climate-Smart Agriculture as an approach to managing landscapescropland, livestock, forests and fisheriesthat aims to achieve three wins: (1) Increased productivity to improve food security and boost farmers incomes; (2) Enhanced resilience to drought, pests, disease and other shocks; (3) Reduced GHG emissions. IFCs Strategy is to contribute to CSA by providing investments and advisory operations that contribute to the three pillars of CSA. To adopt climate-smart agricultural practices, farmers need access to sufficient and adequate finance and skills to rightly use finance. In line with the aforementioned, IFC is looking for a consulting firm to conduct agricultural supply chain mapping and market studies of CSA technologies and practices to support financial institutions to increase lending for CSA in three target countries.
