Climate-smart solutions for small and medium farmers

In the 2020 Entrepreneurs for Resilience Award cycle, we focused on supporting innovative solutions for climate-smart agriculture, including crop and livestock production as well as aquaculture. To be eligible for the award, an enterprise had to take a business-minded approach to providing tools, technologies and approaches enabling smallholder and/or medium-scale farmers in low-income communities to carry out agricultural activities in a way that is both environmentally sustainable and socially beneficial.

The winner, AMAATI, was selected from three finalists by a jury of Swiss Re senior executives, an academic representative and a Swiss Re clients at a live virtual award ceremony on 20 May 2020.
