AGCO Agriculture Foundation opens applications for Climate Action grants

The AGCO Agriculture Foundation (AAF) has announced the launch of its new grant application cycle on the theme of “Climate Action Within the Context of Agriculture” for non-profit organizations with grant proposals between USD$20,000 TO $300,000 and located anywhere across the globe.
 

In alignment with the United Nation Sustainable Development Goal 13 (SDG 13) on “Climate Action” and AGCO’s purpose to deliver “farmer-focused solutions to sustainably feed our world,” the Foundation is accepting grant applications on climate action in agriculture.

The AAF grant application platform, through its community investment software partner, Benevity, is running the application cycle until 30 March 2022. This program strengthens AAF commitment to its strategic focus areas and AGCO’s Farmer-First strategy while addressing global trends on climate change adaptation and mitigation.

The Foundation’s first grant application cycle for 2022 seeks new project proposals from non-profits that combine various sustainable methods to tackle the specific climate change-related challenges of today’s farming communities.

“Climate change is impacting farmers’ livelihoods and our global food supply,” said Metti Richenhagen, Director, AGCO Agriculture Foundation. “Through our current AAF grant funding, we want to support projects, initiatives and innovations that help farmers and farming communities mitigate and build resilient agriculture practices against climate change, improve livelihoods and transform food systems to sustainably feed the world.”

Grant eligible non-profit organizations must focus on climate action in the agricultural context that also aligns with any of the AAF thematic focus areas such as Nutrition & Sustainable Food Systems, Agricultural Education, Research and Innovation, and Farmer Community Development.

The aim is to implement projects that promote sustainable climate solutions for farmers and the agricultural sector to benefit economies while also strengthening community development.
