Agriculture Projects

CARE runs 394 agriculture projects around the world. These projects look at input supply systems, on-farm practices, gender dynamics, market opportunities, climate change, and government policies to ensure that farmers can produce enough of the right kinds of food to feed themselves and earn a living. We focus on Sustainable Agriculture practices that provide opportunities for women farmers.

Our Projects

With the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, CARE’s Pathways Program is based on the conviction that women farmers possess enormous potential to contribute to long-term food security for their families and substantially impact nutritional outcomes in sustainable ways.

Water Smart Agriculture (WaSA) supports smallholder farmers to integrate soil and water management to increase agricultural productivity and enhance conservation of natural resources. 

Funded by USAID since 2010 in nearly 2,000 of the most vulnerable communities in Bangladesh, SHOUHARDO II builds on the successes of SHOUHARDO I, where CARE learned that women's empowerment activities really did make children grow taller.
