In 2023, African Food Changemakers launched the “Building Resilience Against Climate and Environmental Shocks” (BRACE) program. BRACE is an intensive capacity development program designed to support African small and medium entrepreneurs (agriSMEs) in the agribusiness landscape to be aware about how their businesses are affected by climate change and to enable them develop strategies to adapt to and mitigate the impact of climate change through climate-smart practices. Leveraging on ICT, data, and innovation, BRACE will empower agriSMEs through training and technical support, to implement sustainable solutions to scaling their agribusinesses.
BRACE is a three-month capacity development program. The program will leverage a hybrid learning experience to engage entrepreneurs through training, peer-learning and practical applications.
