International programme brings together scientists and national funding agencies from around the globe


The SMARTS2 project aims to demonstrate how conservation agriculture, technology, and fore-knowledge of climate variation (e.g. water availability) can be integrated with small landholder farmers' existing knowledge and behaviours to increase adaptation to climate change. A better understanding of behaviour will lead to a greater adoption of conservation agricultural production systems that are resilient to climate change and will provide rural farmers with tools for self-reliance.
