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 March 2021, AfricaFertilizer.org in collaboration with West Africa Fertilizer Association (WAFA) organized a Fertilizer Technical Working Groups (FTWG) workshop to validate fertilizer statistics for Nigeria and for the year 2020. The workshop was held in Lagos, Nigeria.
AfricaFertilizer.org in partnership with WAFA 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.
