The growing need to feed and sustain the rising world’s population continues to remain a threat to climate. Agriculture accounts for over 24 percent of the Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) and yet less are the strides taken to curb the rising emissions. This paper seeks to explore the knowns and unknowns about low carbon agricultural development in the global south.
Cooperatives are fundamental organizations in smallholder agriculture in developing countries. With the rising and immeasurable effects of climate change effects in such economies, cooperatives urgently need to compete as more ecologically as compared to their current economic and social targets
Worldwide, there is an increasing demand for food as a result of the increasing world population and due to limiting factors in food production such as land scarcity and high labour cost. As response to high demand of food, the Green revolutions was established to ensure the productivity through the intensification of agricultural production.
In the midst of pursuing what I have developed a burning desire for, post my latest consultancy, I took time to re-trace the origin of the value chain to identify what has and not been done in the walk towards low carbon food value chains.
In April 2020, I was privileged to undertake a research project with Agriterra cooperatives in Uganda as fundamental organisations in smallholder agriculture in developing countries. With the rising and immeasurable effects of climate change in such economies, cooperatives urgently need to compete as more ecologically as compared to their current economic and social targets.
