Transforming African Agriculture through proven technologies and partnerships

The Program Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation (TAAT) is funded by the African Development Bank (AfDB) to increase productivity in Africa through the deployment of technologies with proven and high performance. It originated from the need “to execute a bold plan to achieve rapid
agricultural transformation across Africa through raising agricultural productivity” that was declared by participants in the Dakar High-Level Conference, October 2015. It led to the formulation of Feed Africa: A Strategy for African Agricultural Transformation by the AfDB in June 2016.

Bonnes pratiques agricoles (BPA)

Recommandé pour tous les environnements de production de riz.
Cependant, le volet BPA des technologies par environnement de production rizicole peut varier et certaines préconditions sont requises (p. ex. semis en ligne pour utiliser les sarcleuses mécaniques et motorisées).

The case of Cassava Weed Management Technology

The Cassava Compact is led by IITA with a partnership in 12 countries (Benin, Togo, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda, DR Congo, Cameroon, Rwanda, South Sudan, Zambia and Burundi). As cassava is suited to a wide range of climatic conditions, its toolkit approach varies across agro-ecological zones. The Cassava value chain compact aims to shift Africa towards a sustainable cassava transformation by increasing production, productivity, promoting mechanization, value addition, strengthening market linkage and catalyzing investment in the sector.

The case of High Iron Beans Technology

High Iron Beans is one of the commodity value chains supported under TAAT. The HIB Value Chain compact aims at increasing the HIB productivity from 0.8 to 1.2 MT/ha for bush beans and 1.5 to 2.5 MT/ha for climbing beans, produce additional 800,000 MT of HIB in target countries, create access to seed, growing and consuming HIB for 2 million households. Besides increasing productivity and creating access to seeds, the project using the “Commodity Corridor Approach” works at enhancing business opportunities and investments for the youth…
