Assuring better foodstuffs for the future

Sustainable Agriculture

Each year, drought and desertification destroy thousand hectares of farmland. To help feed and clothe the world while preserving the land for future generations, we do support programs that develop and advance local farming while encouraging sustainable practices.

We do support partnerships that educate smallholder farmers in our country about planting and harvesting best practices, along with soil conservation and water management.

We help, guide farmers to bring products from farm gate to home.



Water is both an environmental and a humanitarian issue. There is sufficient fresh water on the planet to ensure everyone has access, yet water scarcity affects more than 40 percent of the global population and is projected to rise. Access to clean water is critical to ensuring strong communities, and it is also critical to our food system.

Agriculture accounts for nearly 70 percent of global fresh water consumption. The aim is to prevent pollution to surface waters, groundwater and bodies of water.

Need to manage our water resources efficiently by conserving water, improving water quality and ensuring access to clean water in the communities where we operate.


Improve water quality through sustainable agriculture

We are improving water quality in areas impacted by agriculture. We work in parallel with producers in using fertilizer efficiently and methodically to maximize harvests, reduce runoff and protect watersheds. A valuable tool for addressing water conservation in agriculture is the field-print calculator, by using of the tool by farmers to help them measure and improve water quality and water use as well as soil conservation, land use, greenhouse gas emissions, energy use and soil carbon.



Our food system is resilient. But the challenges of producing food for a growing population are heightened in the face of a changing climate. We would encourage measures to help agriculturists adapt to a changing climate while seeking to mitigate agriculture’s environmental impact.

Climate change has been affecting the agricultural productivity of smallholder farmers. By 2030, about 90 percent of the world’s major crops are expected to experience a reduced growth rate as a result of climate change. It is essential that farmers are supported to adopt climate-smart agriculture to sustain their livelihoods in the future.
