The project is called INCREASE (Increasing Climate Resilience in Energy and Agricultural Systems and Entrepreneurship). The INCREASE project is a 7 million Euros SIDA funded project promoting climate resilience in energy, agriculture, and food systems.
The INCREASE project’s goal is to address the major challenges of climate change that farmers, agribusinesses, and SMEs are facing.
