CRS works in partnership with local organizations and host country governments to build the capacity of these organizations to address development needs via sustainable-people driven approaches. CRS also works with local stakeholders in disaster situations to provide life-sustaining aid, while building capacity in emergency response and disaster risk reduction. CRS’ largest technical program areas are in Agricultural Livelihoods, Global Health and Humanitarian Response. It is through CRS agriculture programming that CRS is addressing land restoration through agroforestry, farmer-managed natural regeneration (FMNR) and improved soil and water management practices.
