Partnership Aims to Make Tanzanian Farming More Sustainable

The Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) and World Bank (WB) Agriculture Global Practice has signed a letter of intent to strengthen farming-led transformation in Tanzania.

According to a press statement, the support includes the strengthening of cooperation, share information, and deepen collaboration, including jointly developing a strategic portfolio of projects for greater impact.

"At a time when AGRA is focused on a significant push for Africa's agricultural transformation, the partnership with the World Bank provides new energy and drive for the realization of this ambition," Agnes Kalibata, President, AGRA said. She said: "We are very excited to partner in this initiative for achieving our common goals."

The effort comes at a time when there is greater recognition of the untapped potential of agriculture and food sectors to deliver development dividends and help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
