Instead of replicating food production strategies from Asia or Latin America, it is pursuing a uniquely African green revolution tailored to the needs and aspirations of the diverse continent, recognising the importance of sustainability as called for by the late Kofi Annan in 2006. According to AGRA, thanks to its efforts during the last twelve years, over 15 million farm families now have access to inputs, training, financing, and markets. The organisation has also supported the establishment of local African agriculture business, including nurturing 112 African seed companies. Co-operation with scientists has resulted in the generating of over 650 new crops with traits specifically selected for local growing conditions. For more information: AGRA Website
