SuPER approach to smallholder agriculture

Sustainable, Productive, Equitable and Resilient livelihoods, and food and nutrition security, in a changing climate

Vietnam_Mangrove_NurseryCARE’s SuPER approach to agriculture promotes investments that:

  • Promote sustainable agricultural systems that are grounded in healthy ecosystems, stable, accountable and enduring institutions and sustainable financing
  • Promote productive, (including profitable, and nutrition-sensitive) intensification interventions that are ‘climate smart’ and increase returns on investment for farmers
  • Promote equitable outcomes in smallholder agriculture by enabling access to equal rights, opportunities, resources and rewards; taking into account the needs and constraints of women farmers; and supporting access to affordable nutritious food for all
  • Help individuals, families, communities and systems to become resilient i.e. able to withstand and bounce back from environmental and economic shocks and stresses, including those exacerbated by climate change
