AGRA’s vision since 2006 has been to drive inclusive agricultural transformation in Africa by changing the lives and livelihoods of smallholder farmers. In our first decade (2007 – 2016), we sought to break down the barriers limiting farmers from accessing the inputs needed to boost productivity. Starting 2017, we took it a step further and began investing in multiple levels of the agricultural ecosystem, with a focus on increasing smallholder productivity through strategic partnerships and a strengthened capacity by governments to deliver. This report highlights the impact of our work at the farmer and national levels. The report also covers the impact on agricultural systems and strategic partnerships.
