Agriculture Partnerships

CARE works with cutting edge researchers, local organizations, the private sector, and social movements to improve women’s access to the agricultural tools and information they need.

Our Partnerships

Bill & Melissa Gates Foundation
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has been a vital CARE partner since 2001, supporting programs in food security, health equity, water and sanitation, reproductive and maternal health, emergency response, women’s empowerment, advocacy and livelihood development. 

Bringing together superb research capacities and an unparalleled global reach and depth of community relationships, CARE and Cornell University are working together in a new collaboration to create sustainable solutions targeting global concerns, including world hunger and climate change. 

Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)
CARE and FAO published a guidance paper focusing on agricultural practices implemented by small-scale food producers; providing tools and examples of the successful integration of gender equality and women's empowerment in climate-smart agriculture work, and strategies for enhancing the engagement of women and particularly vulnerable groups. 

International Fund for Agriculture Development (IFAD) 
CARE International recently developed a guidance document for the International Fund for Agriculture Development (IFAD) on how to design smallholder agriculture adaptation programs that consider the differential impacts of climate change on women, men and youth smallholder farmers.

USAID/Food for Peace
CARE has partnered with USAID for over 6 decades.  Together, we are working to find innovative and sustainable solutions to challenging development problems.

World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
In 2008 CARE and WWF launched an alliance to address the root causes of poverty and environmental degradation.
