What we do

One of the biggest threats to development in Africa is climate change. The unreliable rainfalls make it difficult for farmers to plan their crops. Drought and soil erosion ruin the land and crops fail. Those already vulnerable are hit the hardest. Sustainable agriculture contributes to the mitigation of climate change and protects against the negative effects of climate change.

Vi Agroforestry works for sustainably improved livelihoods for smallholder farmer families in Sub-Saharan Africa through increased climate change resilience, food security, higher incomes and greater equality between women and men. Through agroforestry and by strengthening the capacity of democratic farmer organisations our work empower smallholder farmer families to reduce poverty, hunger, and deforestation, and contribute to increased biodiversity.

Our work contributes to primarily 5 of the global Sustainable Development Goals:
