Abstract This study is part of the project ‘Incentives and innovative finance for scaling Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) up and out’ which as part of the flagship ‘Climate-Smart Technologies and Practices’. Through case study research, the project aims to develop context-specific knowledge on the factors and conditions which constitute an effective technical and financial package to scale up and scale out CSA practices and businesses. The impact of these packages on the adoption of CSA and the resilience of farmers and Small to Medium Enterprises to climate change will be assessed by means of three case studies.
The first case aimed at upscaling CSA with small scale food producers who were organised in village savings and loans in Tanzania. The second case study focused on climate smart villages using climate-smart financial diaries for scaling in Kenya. This third study focuses on the financial resilience of smallholder farmers in Kenya who are affected by climate change. We will use blockchain technology as a lens to discuss the potential impact provided through this innovative technology. In the next year we envisage to run a small pilot with blockchain technology in Kenya. Kenya is particularly interesting considering blockchain, as mobile payment systems are well and widely adopted. This enhances possibilities for linking blockchain technology.
