Workshop II: Agricultural Mechanization for Food Security in Nigeria

The Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) just announced a 100 Mio. support programme for Nigeria and underlined that one of the main focuses will be to support agricultural development.

To diversify Nigeria’s economy is also a priority of political actors in the country and the agricultural sector is high on the agenda. Even though the sector experienced considerable growth in the past years, it is still regarded as largely underdeveloped. Until now, the country is depending on food imports, including staples to feed its growing population. But, as only half of its vast agricultural land is already being used, there is large potential. By delivering inputs for agricultural mechanization, agribusiness can contribute to long lasting food security and value creation in Nigeria.

As the most populous country in Africa and the strongest economy on the continent with considerable agricultural land, Nigeria offers great potential for more partnerships between German and Nigerian companies within the agricultural and food sector.

Therefore, the objective of this workshop is to understand and identify the current bottlenecks for businesses within the sector, to present financing and partnership options not only for project development but also the operation phase and align the activities of private sector with ongoing and planned projects of the German development cooperation in Nigeria.

For a more detailed overview of the workshop, please find the program overview below.
