STATE CAPABILITY WHITE PAPER
Driving agricultural transformation through state capability enhancement and flagship programs
In its early years of operation, the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) worked mainly with smallholder farming communities, research entities and the private sector in its bid to deliver agricultural transformation. Before long, however, the organization realized that engaging with government would be critical to scaling and sustaining registered gains. Since that time, AGRA has been working with government and other key players to identify and articulate capacity gaps, co-create evidence-based interventions, and make investments to strengthen state capability. Today, this work is vital to AGRA’s efforts to drive national and regional agriculture as the surest path to prosperity on the African continent.
