9 ways to get climate-smart agriculture to more people

The process of getting better practices to more people – “scaling up” innovations to make agriculture more climate-smart – has baffled many development practitioners.

Big Data Platform, a path to improving decision making for smallholder farmers

About Climate-Smart Agriculture
