By 2023, Asia will be the continent most affected by natural disasters linked to climate change. To cope with droughts, floods, landslides and storms, farmers need to strengthen their skills and knowledge in order to adapt their farming activities. The challenge is all the greater in view of the growing importance of industrial agriculture. That’s why SWISSAID is helping farming families in India and Myanmar to turn to agroecological agriculture to create better, more sustainable livelihoods.

Home to more than half the world’s population, this continent encompasses immense political and cultural diversity. Socio-economic disparities are considerable, particularly in terms of gender relations. In many regions, mores weigh heavily on women and girls. In both countries, SWISSAID’s projects are committed to gender equality, combating domestic violence and empowering women.

In Asia, SWISSAID is developing projects in India and Myanmar.
