Promotion of fertilizer production, cross-border trade and consumption in Africa


This study, initiated by the African Union Commission (AUC), the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and the Africa Fertilizer Financing Mechanism (AFFM), is part of the efforts undertaken by African leaders to foster access to affordable and quality fertilizers. Its overall objective was to provide a solid background document reviewing the state of selected Africa’s fertilizer clusters and related emerging value chains as well as provide strategic policy options and best practices. All these potential solutions will provide effective and accessible funding mechanisms that support national and regional priorities in the context of ending hunger by 2025, African Union Agenda 2063, and more specifically accelerating the 2006 Abuja Declaration through the Africa Fertilizer Financing Mechanism.
