ADAPTA is Africa's first climate adaptation facility that combines climate-smart agriculture and blended finance to fund small and medium producers and Agri-SMEs in East Africa. The climate-smart due diligence module is unique globally and can represent a driver of change to unlock commercial bank lending across the region, now at less than 5% of total loans. 

 

Tiserin Capital has partnered the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT, part of the CGIAR, the largest global network on agriculture research to develop the climate-smart module and portfolio management module. The module will leverage technologies such as Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and Normalized Difference Water Index (NDWI) tools, now more effective and less expensive, and micro weather stations to assess climate impact on small and medium producers and Agri-SMEs.
