Stichting SNV Netherlands Development Organisation (a foundation established under Dutch law), registered at Parkstraat 83, 2514 JG The Hague, The Netherlands, [represented by SNV in Uganda] hereinafter referred to as “SNV” is a not-for-profit international development organization that applies practical know-how to make a lasting difference in the lives of people living in poverty. We use our extensive and long-term in-country presence to apply and adapt our top-notch expertise in agriculture, energy, and WASH to local contexts. SNV has an annual turnover of €130 million, over 1,250 staff in more than 25 countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. We are proud to be a not-for-profit organization that uses project financing to implement our mission. This requires us to work efficiently and to invest in operational excellence.
In its new Strategic Plan period (2019 – 2022), SNV will more explicitly aim for systems change during project preparation and implementation - by strengthening institutions and kick-starting markets that help many more to escape poverty beyond our projects. We will continue to position ourselves as a premium organization, with decentralized management. For more information on our operations in Uganda and SNV generally visit our website: www.snv.org.
The CRAFT project works with and through the private sector and supports public sector players in creating an institutional environment for wide-scale adoption of climate smart agriculture (CSA) practices, including more efficient use of water and (renewable) energy sources. The project is driven by 3 pillars:
- Adoption of CSA practices & technologies in arable crop production farming systems
- Acceleration of investments and business growth in selected value chains
- Improved enabling environment for scaling out of CSA.
CRAFT Uganda has so far signed partnership contracts with 14 SMEs to support the CRAFT project in promoting increased and sustainable land productivity in the Potato, Soybean, Sunflower and Sesame value chains. This is being achieved through promoting climate smart services and technologies among smallholder farmers in Uganda.
To improve effectiveness and efficiency of extension systems/services; and promote adoption of climate smart services and technologies, the CRAFT project has supported the development of climate smart technical training manuals and training tools for the 4 commodities (Potato, Soybean, Sunflower and Sesame) promoted by the CRAFT project. The manuals are currently undergoing final review, while the information for the training tools has been generated and is pending development of relevant illustrations and printing.
