Small-holder communities like south Greenlandic sheep herders across the Arctic are struggling to keep up with climate change. Through a combination of an education program and micro finance it is possible to alleviate the two main barriers preventing sheep farmers from successfully adapting their farming techniques. It is necessary for both of these solutions to be implemented together. The education programs will teach financial literacy, soil friendly practices, water saving techniques and climate safe food production. Once the farmers have completed the educational program, they will be qualified to apply for a microfinance loan for climate smart agricultural solutions locally. This program will lower food insecurity, and carbon emissions while creating greater self-sufficiency and autonomy.
