Visualizing Insights on Fertilizer for African Agriculture (VIFAA)

Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) has the lowest fertilizer usage in the world – insufficient to replace soil nutrients lost every year to crop production. To maintain agricultural productivity and sustain farmers, both government and the private sector in Africa need to better collect, analyze, and use relevant data to encourage fertilizer use. Through the VIFAA Program, we are working with partners on dashboards and tools to improve, manage, and visualize fertilizer data in Africa.

The VIFAA Fertilizer Dashboards program led by Development Gateway (DG) in partnership with International Fertilizer Development Center’s (IFDC) AfricaFertilizer.org (AFO) and Wallace & Associates with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

AFO in collaboration with the VIFAA partners intends to develop 5 more dashboards within the next 3 years to include Ethiopia, Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia and Senegal.

AFO and DG we are continually working with both public and private sector within the dashboard countries to refine the platforms to meet respective data needs.
