Water scarcity in the semiarid region of Ceará, in the Brazilian Northeast, prevents farming families from growing enough crops to maintain their livelihoods. Instituto Brotar (Brotar) works with women and youth to implement ecological water and sanitation systems to raise their agricultural productivity. This increases their incomes and their communities’ resilience. Brotar also holds workshops to promote women’s training and inclusion in sustainable agriculture production and marketing. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in Brazil. Brotar’s activities promote smallholder agriculture and production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
