Executive Summary:

The world’s most important challenges—poverty, food security and climate change—intersect at smallholder farms around the world. Smallholders produce 70% of the world’s food, yet live trapped in poverty, and threatened by climate change. Agriculture represents a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions, while climate change threatens global food production. Sistema.bio is a proven suite of technology, training and financing that creates infrastructure and capacity on farms to convert waste into renewable energy and fertilizer. This allows farmers to improve the economic and health conditions of their households, while increasing the productivity and sustainability of their farms. Farmers reduce the GHG profile of our food systems, while also locking carbon into the soil. We will leverage McArthur funding with another 500 million in farmer payments, carbon funding and private investment to reach 10 million farms and create a pathway to serve over 100 million farms with climate-smart technology.
