What We Fund

Agriculture, Livelihoods, and Conservation

Improving farmer livelihoods while conserving natural resources.

Smallholder farmers and forest-dependent communities have the power to protect the planet’s resources while also contributing to sustainable rural development.

Building upon years of exploratory grantmaking, research, and engagement with local communities, we are exploring solutions that balance agricultural economic opportunities with environmental sustainability through the Agriculture, Livelihoods, and Conservation strategy. Our work builds on the Foundation’s experience with climate and land use, and our work in reproductive health.

Our grantee partners protect forests and biodiversity while ensuring that people who rely on them can thrive by supporting sustainable smallholder agriculture.
