Analysis: Small-Scale Farmers Receive 0.8% of Climate Finance Despite Providing a Third of Our Food Supply

By Anay Mridul

Amid climate change and food security challenges, small-scale farmers and supply chain actors receive less than 1% of global climate funding, despite being responsible for 35% of the world’s food supply.

In fact, these numbers actually dropped by 44% in 2019-20 compared to 2017-18 – though the sources, objectives and geographic distribution of the finance were largely similar.
