The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) faces water and food challenges due to projected increases in temperature, more extreme weather events, and changes in total precipitation and rainfall variability. This is particularly true for the agricultural sector, the majority of which is rainfed, is a central engine of the DRC’s economy, and the primary source of livelihood for most Congolese.  

Combatting the effect of climate change requires weather and agricultural knowledge, however, more than 80% of smallholder farmers in the DRC face a lack of agricultural information, such as weather data and advice on organic, sustainable and profitable farming. 


KivuGreen’s solution is a web and mobile platform that supports efficient water management by connecting smallholder farmers to agricultural information and advice. This innovation works with, or without, an internet connection. The platform also bridges information gaps faced by women, with 55% of the users being women producers. KivuGreen’s innovation helps them increase agricultural productivity and income.
