Kheyti’s mission

Kheyti helps smallholder farmers battle climate change and earn a steady income in India. The severe, negative impact of climate change on the livelihoods of farmers in southern India is increasing. Kheyti’s “Greenhouse-in-a-Box” is a low-cost, modular greenhouse designed to make farming income more climate-resilient.

Helping smallholder farmers earn climate-resilient incomes

In 2022, Engineering for Change Fellow Maël Sonna Donko, a Cameroon-based structural engineer, conducted research to inform design improvements for Kheyti’s “Greenhouse-in-a-Box.”
