In the face of increasing negative impacts of climate change and other economic and political shocks, what programmatic interventions can sustainably enhance resilience? This webinar examines how the Food for Peace-funded ENSURE DFSA in Zimbabwe enhanced household-level resilience through an integrated systems approach to financial inclusion, value chain support and market systems development.
During this webinar, participants will:
- Learn how inclusive finance and market systems increased household resilience in Zimbabwe
- Examine findings from the recent ICRISAT study on the impact of savings groups and ENSURE's Technical Brief: Savings groups as a cross-cutting sectoral intervention
- Hear how the Farming as a Business (FaaB) approach promoted market participation and addressed the issue of diversifying livelihood risks
The webinar will be facilitated by the FFP-funded Strengthening Capacity in Agriculture, Livelihoods, and Environment (SCALE) Award.
