Job Summary

Background
The Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) Programme is a 5-year, € 39 million project being implemented in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. The project uses an inclusive Business Development approach to support the international and Dutch efforts on climate change and sustainable production in arable farming.

A climate smart business case matching grant facility aims to further improve access to finance and facilitate scaling.
