The livelihoods of these small farmers have been affected by intense weather events which erode soils and landscapes making the environment less productive for agriculture and livestock.
WWF in South Africa is already making an effort to address the identified problem by partnering with Mahlathini Development Foundation to promote, capacitate, and support rural smallholder farmers to commit to climate smart farming practises and obtain better access to trading and alternative market.
Climate smart farming has been found to be a a good remedy for declining biodiversity and crop volumes globally and a solution that can help farmers in South Africa increase crop productivity, reduce harmful emissions in agriculture, and produce drought resistant crops.
Luno is thus seeking to help WWF South Africa in its efforts to:
Provide training to farmers
Develop collective stewardship initiatives around conservation-worthy landscapes
Utilize various incentives to improve market access
Help farmers shift away from unsustainable agricultural systems
