Challenges in Agriculture

AGRA’s strategy for Mali offers support for catalytic initiatives that contribute to an agricultural transformation by addressing weak market linkages that prevent farmers and commodity handlers from capitalizing on the growing feed, and improving the limited processing capacity that is currently constraining structured market development.
