in poverty. We use our extensive and long-term in-country presence to apply
and adapt our top-notch expertise in agriculture, energy and WASH to local

and Latin America. We are proud to be a not-for-profit organisation that uses
project financing to implement our mission. This requires us to work

SNV is preparing for an exciting new project focusing on changing the business
models in cotton, dairy and horticulture production systems. The project,
which is to start in January 2020 is a three year project. Working with
companies, SMEs and farmers, the new project brings together lessons from
previous achievements in climate smart agriculture and renewable energy and
works on proving the premise that an integrated private sector approach to
climate change can be commercially viable and environmentally sustainable

Integrated Soil Fertility Management + Agroforestry + Bio-slurry + Renewable
Energy + Irrigation = More climate friendly, stable & higher yields

The project maintains a strong orientation on the differing roles of men and
women farmers in farming and in business and also on youth (self) employment.
