SGI aims to enhance livelihood opportunities for smallholder guar farmers and lead to their economic development. SGI aims to achieve this through the promotion of agronomic and groundwater-neutral best practices in guar cultivation in order to build climate resilience, thus enhancing productivity. SGI has also been working to create a market system that maximizes flexibility, resilience and responsiveness. To this end, we undertaken several traceability initiatives to integrate farmers directly into the supply chains of institutional buyers. Additionally, we have also facilitated the set-up of a Farmer Producer Company, which will help institutional buyers significantly scale up their procurement of sustainable guar from our program farmers in the long run.
