Nigeria

Agriculture is increasingly becoming a key driver of Nigeria’s economy contributing 26% to GDP and employing 42% of the population. In recent years, the Government of Nigeria (GoN) has placed fresh emphasis on the agriculture sector in its efforts to generate broad-based growth, diversify the economy away from crude oil, create jobs, and achieve food security. GoN has unveiled a new Agricultural Promotion Policy (APP 2016-2020) also known as the Green Alternative aimed at achieving food security goals, import substitution, job creation, and economic diversification. Investments in agriculture are anchored on the Agriculture Sector Investment Plan(ASIP) (The Green Alternative Plan).
