Agriculture & Livelihoods

Launching our Agricultural Transformation Initiative in Malawi, December 2018

The ATI is the Malawi branch of the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World, that focuses specifically on smallholder farmers in Malawi.

The global decline of smoking could have many positive health impacts but could bring negative economic consequences to tobacco farmers, many of whom are in developing nations. In order to address the agricultural impact of smoking cessation, the Foundation is focused on partnering with agricultural, rural development, and smallholder experts to identify alternative livelihoods for tobacco farmers.
