The work of the Alliance for a Green Revolution (AGRA) in Nigeria is aligned with the Federal Government’s Agriculture Promotion Policy (APP) or Green Alternative and the Government’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP).
We support the Government agricultural priorities on building an agribusiness economy for sustainable prosperity through domestic food security, export generation, import substitution and job creation.

Challenges in Agriculture
Our objective is to increase the incomes of smallholder farmers and improve food security to reduce shocks and stresses by making investments that catalyze an agricultural transformation. In Nigeria, AGRA works at the Federal level to support agriculture policy reforms and systems development. We also work to improve the incomes and food security of the rice, maize, cassava and soybean farmers in Kaduna and Niger States.
In this decade, AGRA built an asset base in technologies, partnerships and models that can be scaled for significant impact on the status of agriculture in Nigeria. Our strategy and support for Nigeria from 2017 to 2021 seeks to bring all of these elements together to catalyze and sustain inclusive agriculture transformation in Nigeria through contributions to the improvement of productivity and marketing of produce, effectively improving the incomes and food security for at least 1.5 million smallholder farming households. Through an investment of $19 million we seek to support the governments’ (Federal and State) need for a strong agriculture sector with effective coordination and implementation capabilities.
