At the 2022 African Green Revolution Forum in Kigali, the African Green Revolution Alliance (AGRA) and the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) signed a new agreement. AGRA and GAIN signed a new five-year agreement to work on the African agriculture and Agri-food landscape. AGRA and GAIN will work with the African government to develop guidelines on nutritional farming culture, which will help in better access and availability of nutritious food. The agreement aims to assist African governments in implementing strategies to combat the current food crisis. AGRA & GAIN work to strengthen the link between smallholder farmers and African agri-food companies. Small-scale farmers will benefit from these organizations in marketing their goods on the African continent.
AGRA is a farmer-centered, African-led, and partnership-driven institution that helps Africa’s smallholder farming from a solitary struggle to survive in the Agri-market. AGRF brings governments and partners together to address food security and make safe, nutritious foods produced in a sustainable manner available to all Africans. GAIN is a Swiss-based foundation that was established at the United Nations in 2002 to address the human suffering caused by malnutrition. The two organizations will work together to tackle the setbacks in delivering strategies for producing quality, nutritious food throughout the African continent. The agreement with GAIN was for the expertise they have in nutrition and food systems, which are becoming more important as the impact of climate change on agriculture grows. AGRA’s goal is to encourage investment in sustainable agriculture so that all Africans everywhere can have better access to safe and nutritious food
