Knowledge for life

PlantwisePlus aims to reach 75 million smallholder farmers in low and lower-middle income countries, providing them with access to the knowledge and skills they need to improve their production practices.

This will be achieved by supporting countries to predict, prevent, and prepare for plant health threats in the face of a changing climate. This ensures that smallholder farmers reduce their crop losses and produce more and safer food through sustainable crop production practices.

Delivered through gender-sensitive and climate-resilient approaches, PlantwisePlus is tackling the challenges facing smallholder production through three impact pathways: Pest Preparedness, Pesticide Risk Reduction, and Farmer Advisory.

Our donors

We would like to express our thanks to our PlantwisePlus donors. Our donors enable us to provide support to countries and farmers so they can reduce crop losses and meet the increasing demand for safer, higher-quality food.

Sustainable Development Goals

PlantwisePlus contributes to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It builds on a whole-system approach to the agricultural sector and its interventions address multiple Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Supporting smallholder farmers to reduce crop losses and build resilience to climate-related shocks, and supporting agricultural service providers to take advantage of income-generating opporunities.

Increasing food security by helping farmers predict and respond to pest threats and increasing access to safer foods by supporting countries to reduce the use of highly hazardous pesticides in favour of biological controls.

Facilitating women's access to advisory services and inputs, as well as developing agri-business opportunities for women and youth.

Equipping farmers and agricultural stakeholders with plant health advice that supports climate-resilience.

Supporting countries to prevent or control invasive alien species, and promoting sustainable agricultural practices that protect biodiversity and contribute to halting land degradation.

Building in-country capacity on plant health threats through partnerships with public, private, and civil society organisations, and supporting integrated decision-making processes at national and regional levels on agricultural issues.
