AFRICA AGRICULTURE STATUS REPORT 2017 EDITOR

The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) is an African-led alliance focused on putting farmers at the center of our continent’s growing economy. AGRA advances uniquely African solutions to sustainably raise farmers’ productivity and connect them to a growing marketplace. Together with its partners—including researchers, donors, African governments, the private sector, and civil society—AGRA seeks to create an environment where Africa feeds itself.
The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa is a not-for-profit organization working with African governments, other donors, Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), the private sector and African farmers to significantly and sustainably improve the productivity and incomes of resource poor smallholder farmers in Africa. AGRA’s overall goal is to catalyze and sustain an Inclusive Agricultural Transformation in Africa to increase incomes and improve food security of at least 30 million smallholder farming households with a set of targeted catalytic downstream and systemic investments coupled with government engagement made through its alliance of partners.
AGRA has been publishing the Africa Agriculture Status Report (AASR) since 2013. The annual publication has become a reference point for emerging topics on agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), such as Staple Crops (2013), Climate Change (2014), Youth in Agriculture (2015), and Progress towards Agriculture Transformation (2016). We are currently working on the 5th edition of the AASR 2017.
AGRA is currently working the 5th edition its annual AASR, which will focus on The Business of the Smallholder Agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa. The publication will provide an overview of the state of smallholder agriculture in Africa, changing contexts, challenges and opportunities. It will outline strategies for promoting farming as a business via interventions which aim to improve the business environment. It will explore the roles of private sector, agribusiness and public sector in smallholder agriculture. This report will include a detailed collection of data and information from SSA countries.
