Combating climate change in agriculture (FIRA Program)
The program sought sustainable investments and practices in agriculture, fisheries and forestry sectors, which helped improve the quality of life of rural populations, especially in poor regions, and optimize the use of natural resources while mainstreaming climate change mitigation and adaptation in the sector.
