USAID West Africa Fertilizer Program
USAID WAFP (2012-2017) is improving the supply and distribution of appropriate and affordable fertilizers in West Africa. The project is funded by USAID.
Regional Impact by Improving Regulatory and Business Environment
The current USAID WAFP, funded by USAID (2012-2017), is a realignment of the initial project broadening its reach to have regional impact across the West Africa sub-region, 15 ECOWAS countries as well as Mauritania and Chad.
The project’s goal is to sustainably improve agricultural productivity and its objective is to increase regional availability and use of appropriate and affordable fertilizer in West Africa. To accomplish these aims, WAFP focuses on creating a conducive policy, regulatory and business environment for increased investment in the fertilizer business and facilitating access to business, investment and financing information that will allow the private sector to deliver quality and affordable fertilizers to farmers.
