Outlook

The pilot experiences in one rural agency per participating MFI have yielded very promising results. The challenge lies in scaling up the model throughout the network of agencies in each institution and replicating the concept with other MFIs in other countries and regions.

The potential in both Latin America and the Caribbean and other regions for the promotion of sustainable adaptation processes among small-scale agricultural producers is enormous. Only in the Latin America and Caribbean region there are more than 11.5 million agricultural units of 10 hectares or less and there are about 2.5 billion small farmers around the world.
