Facilitating the Creation of an Enabling Environment for Technology Deployment in Africa
Access to and use of improved seed is one of the most significant challenges for African farmers.
The TAAT Policy Enabler, led by AATF, is supporting efforts towards creation of an enabling environment that will fast-track crop variety release and registration and spur market incentives for agro-inputs and agricultural produce. The Project achieves this through engagement with policy decision makers and relevant stakeholders for policy, regulatory and institutional reforms in the seed sector, pesticide industry and agricultural value chains in select African countries.
AATF is leading the TAAT Policy Enabler Project that is an initiative of the African Development Bank (AfDB) under its Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation program.
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.
