AICCRA-Senegal Gender-Smart Accelerator Grant concept note


The goal of the Gender Smart Accelerator Grant is to develop a pipeline of gender responsive CSA business models that can be matched with private investor capital in Senegal. While climate change is an economic reality affecting the agricultural sector, women farmers lack access to inputs, information, and finance to innovate with climate solutions. This creates a gender productivity gap and increases women’s vulnerability to climate change. AICCRA-Senegal will promote gender-smart investments in partnership with national, regional and the private sector actors to address development and business challenges related to the scaling of CSA technology packages.
