SUSTAINABILITY IS OUR DNA
LEANLANDS AFRICA LTD
Leanlands is solving sustainability issues in the domestic food and agribusiness markets. Our farmers adopt climate smart agricultural practices as well as fair labor practices. We supply the farm inputs, supervise the production process to ensure pesticides and herbicides use is according to international standards . We also provide financing to our farmers and train them on climate smart agriculture as well as profible production models.
The current agriculture systems in the Continent are unsustainable and plagued by inefficiencies that lead to ecological degradation.The most vulnerable sector to climate change contributes 17% of total emissions directly through agricultural activities & an additional 14% through land-use changes.Climate change will reduce crop production by up to 40% which will degrade farmers livelihoods, create food security challenges and causing further land degradation in pursuit of higher yields. Smallholder farmers make up 70% of producers and live in rural areas with 400 million of them living in poverty. To create sustainable food systems, we must adopt holistic solutions that address the challenges across the value chains.
A multifaceted strategy to profitably tackle the food and agribusiness sustainability strategy.
