Supporting Environmental Sustainability in Latin America

Small-scale farmers around the world are facing the direct impacts of agriculture-induced environmental degradation and climate change, including changing rainfall patterns, drought, flooding and the geographical redistribution of pests and diseases. The resulting crop failures, soil infertility and erosion and contaminated and declining sources of water are causing continual economic losses and undermining food security across rural communities globally. In Latin America, Lutheran World Relief promotes agricultural practices and technologies that allow rural communities to improve their environmental conditions while building their resilience to climate change and increasing their incomes.
