Growth for Rural Advancement and Sustainable Progress (GRASP) is implemented by the International Trade Centre (ITC) – the joint agency of the United Nations and the World Trade Organisation (WTO) – with active participation from local partners. The project is funded by the delegation of the European Union to Pakistan. Aimed at poverty alleviation, GRASP is working to build the Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) sector in the country by focusing on rural communities in 11 districts of Sindh and Balochistan each. Pakistan makes it to the top ten countries vulnerable to the impacts of climate change almost every year. It is therefore important for SMEs to be able to build their resilience and have the capacity to adapt to changing conditions. The project has outlined its objectives in outputs, and one of them is to promote climate-smart agriculture practices and technologies in selected value chains, and to build the capacities of agribusiness and environmental technology service providers.
