Resilient Food Systems is one of the three Integrated Approach Pilots funded by the Global Environment Facility. Implementation is led by the International Fund for Agricultural Development, in collaboration with 12 African countries and several regional partners. The five-year programme is committed to fostering sustainability and resilience for food security in sub-Saharan Africa, contributing to a paradigm shift in the continent’s agriculture: one which emphasizes the importance of natural capital and ecosystem services to enhance agricultural productivity.
The programme directly engages 12 countries in the integration of natural capital management and ecosystem services through investments that aim to improve smallholder farming and food security.
