Livelihoods and agriculture development

Agriculture is the main source of income and employment for 70% of the world’s poorest living in rural areas. Cowater International delivers large-scale rural development programs diversifying economic opportunities for smallholder farmers and rural communities, and increasing access to climate-smart technologies, knowledge, and inputs to boost agriculture and livestock production. By supporting disruptive innovations, sharing knowledge and developing skills, and facilitating the development of localised partnerships, we expand livelihood opportunities for the poorest segments of the population, and generate sustainable impact at scale.
