Root Capital's December issue brief, Investing in Resilience: A Shared Value Approach to Agricultural Extension, focuses on scaling climate-smart practices through agricultural extension services. 

The briefing suggests that climate-smart extension services can help overcome food security in the midst of climate change by creating shared value across the supply chain. 

Root Capital finds that"actors who are interested in investing in resilient food systems can help agriculture organizations overcome barriers to delivering effective extension, while influencing extension to be more climate-smart."

As a result, such agricultural extensions can help food systems develop shared value across the supply chain while also encouraging climate-resilient techniques to combat the rising threats of climate change and food security challenges.
