Introduction

Building Farmer Resilience Across Africa

ACRE Africa empowers farmers across Africa to thrive in the face of climate challenges. We design and implement innovative risk mitigation solutions that protect farmers against risks like droughts, floods, and excessive rainfall.

By mitigating these risks, we enable farmers to bounce back from calamities and re-invest in their farms. ACRE Africa’s operations align with several Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly:

  • SDG 1: No Poverty,
  • SDG 2: Zero Hunger, and
  • SDG 13: Climate Action.

Our Mission:

We are determined to champion a paradigm shift towards equity, fairness and innovation in the agricultural sector. Through localized solutions that reduce climate-associated risk, we help unlock the full potential of agriculture and inspire a new generation of farmers across Africa.

Our Vision
To help unlock the full potential of agriculture by eliminating the stress and potential damage of climate variables for farmers across Africa.

How We Work

We aim to mitigate risks for farmers by offering end-to-end solutions across all stages, including agri profiling, access to credit and input, capacity building and advisory dissemination, insured risks, and access to markets, while also fostering collaboration among stakeholders in the agricultural value chain to enhance farmers’ resilience and boost production.

Our Approach to Risk Management.

ACRE Africa addresses these challenges by providing innovative insurance solutions tailored to the specific needs of smallholder farmers. Our approach includes:
Designing and implementing index-based insurance products
These products trigger payouts based on objective weather data, such as rainfall levels, rather than relying on individual farm assessments. This simplifies claims processing and reduces costs.
Leveraging technology
We use technology to collect and analyze data, design insurance products, and streamline claims processing. This ensures efficiency, transparency, and scalability.
Working with local partners
We collaborate with local insurance companies, NGOs, and other stakeholders to ensure our products are accessible and relevant to farmers in different regions.
