Description

To contribute to food and nutrition security in seven countries in the Sahel and to improve farmer livelihoods, Sorghum and Millet Compact activities were launched in Mali and Senegal. The Compact aims to link last-mile populations to value chains. The Compact is part of the African Development Bank’s plan to transform agriculture in seven Sahelian countries — Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal and Sudan — through the Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation (TAAT) program.
