In 2012, IFDC, through AfricaFertilizer.org initiative have been working with the CountrySTAT program of FAO to produce and disseminate, reliable and up-to-date official statistics on fertilizer produced, imported, exported and consumed in countries within the West Africa Sub-region.
In May 2021, AfricaFertilizer.org organized a Fertilizer Technical Working Groups (FTWG) workshop to validate fertilizer statistics for Tanzania and for the years 2019 and 2020. The workshop was held in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.
AfricaFertilizer.org aims to improve the quality and availability of fertilizer data in-terms of production, trade and consumption to enable decision-makers to have and to use reliable fertilizer data for formulation and monitoring of agricultural development policies, strategies on food security, promotion of trade in West Africa region and beyond.
