AfDB is supporting AATF in executing activities under the TAAT Maize Compact and TAAT Policy Enabler Compact under the Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation (TAAT) program.

More About the Project

TAAT Policy Enabler targets to increase farmers in Africa using improved seeds from 30 percent to 60 percent within the next 8-10 years.

The Compact will facilitate farmers access to quality seeds, fertilizers and agro-chemicals once input markets are properly accredited.

Creation of market incentives through facilitation of competitive value-added chains will enable farmers to easily access commodity markets.

Regional Harmonization of seed and pesticide regulations and guidelines will boost regional trade in agro-inputs and diffusion of technologies across agro-ecological zones.

The Compact will enhance the capacity of Ministries, Departments and Agencies in participating countries in formulation, review and implementation of agricultural policies.
