Abt Associates: Bold thinkers driving real-world impact
Imagine carrying almost 16 gallons of water for 45 minutes, three times daily. That’s what Emma Alvarez, a subsistence farmer in Bolivia, had to do just to water her crops each day.
To achieve this, the IFS Project has developed an integrated package of technical assistance at the farm level, combining capacity building, natural resource management, and institutional strengthening for farmers and producer organizations. This work helps beneficiaries better understand the problems related to climate change, and more importantly, how to manage natural resources more efficiently.
