Fertilizer Policy Peer Review - Learning and Sharing Programme
The programme aims to improve the quality of fertilizer policy formulation and implementation through peer review and sharing of country and regional experiences and practices, successes and failures.
What's happening in the programme?
The programme will sponsor two peer review meetings each year in which a host country or a regional economic community (REC) lays a given fertilizer policy or initiative open to examination by 6-8 other countries, RECs and relevant African NGOs. Each meeting will be preceded by the compilation of of an expert report the results of which will be published by the NEPAD Agency
The activities will entail a fertilizer subsidy learning platform with participants from five countries (Rwanda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, and Nigeria). These experts will convene a regional learning platform to share experiences and lessons learned in implementing fertilizer subsidy programmes in their country. They will prepare a report on best practices in the implementation of fertilizer subsidy programmes in Africa.
