At Chemonics, we are committed to working together to find and implement innovative projects that achieve development impact. That’s why we build strategic partnerships that promote agricultural development, economic growth, and food security. As a result, local communities are able to enhance resiliency, increase incomes, and improve nutrition. Our projects address food security for vulnerable populations, ensure improved livelihoods for smallholder farmers, and provide stable access to nutritious food. Our successes are rooted in technical and innovative approaches. We’ve connected rural farmers with mobile banking services, and we’ve identified and supported local agriculture luminaries to guide sustainable improvements throughout the sector.
