AGRA (Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa) exists to fulfill the vision that Africa can feed itself and the world—transforming agriculture from a solitary struggle to survive to a business that thrives.
AGRA is an independent African-led and Africa-based organization committed to putting farmers at the center of our continent’s growing economies. With headquarters in Nairobi and offices in Ghana, Tanzania, Mali and Mozambique, we have worked across 18 countries with our partners to serve millions of farmers and thousands of local agriculture businesses.
Our investments are primarily focused on Africa’s family farmers, the millions of hardworking men and women across the continent who typically cultivate crops and tend livestock on less than two hectares of land. They are the heart of African agriculture, African economies and Africa’s future.
AGRA was formed in 2006 in response to a call from former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, who said the time had come for African farmers to wage a “uniquely African Green Revolution.” AGRA seeks to meet this challenge by embracing food production practices that are environmentally sustainable, economically inclusive, and aligned with Africa’s unique agriculture environments and food preferences.
