In fiscal year 2018, lutheran world relief implemented approximately 22 projects that involved climate strategies and approaches. We introduced environmentally sustainable farming practices so that communities get the most out of their land while conserving and restoring their natural resources. We also worked with local and national governments to facilitate the equitable access to and protection of natural resources, helping communities assess their vulnerabilities to natural hazards and develop the plans and skills they need to prepare for them.

Agriculture: lutheran world relief works with poor, rural communities around the world to help farmers improve their crops, learn new techniques and tools to increase their yield and attract buyers who will pay more for their products. We help rural communities develop productive, resilient and stable economies through an enterprise-based approach that engages the private sector at multiple levels to create profitable partnerships that benefit families and promote rural livelihoods. In fiscal year 2018, we carried out 55 programs focused on agriculture and food security that engaged approximately 130,000 farmers.
