In 2017-18, second year of Better Cotton Growth & Innovation Fund (GIF), more than one million cotton farmers in India, Pakistan, China, Mozambique, Turkey,Senegal and Tajikistan received training and support from the Fund through regional Implementing Partners.

The growth of the programme over the last two years establishes the success of the programme by increasingly reaching out to farmers and promoting sustainability in the cotton supply chain. Read the program Annual Report to know more about the activities and results.
