June 1, 2022 - Author: Dr. Balaraba Sule and Prof. Alex Coker
One of the cardinal objectives of the Feed the Future (FTF) Nigeria Agriculture Policy Project (NAPP) was to support policy processes and engagements through research and capacity building. The Nigeria Agriculture Policy Activity (NAPA) is an extension of NAPP in the FTF targeted states in Nigeria, including Niger State. The goal of NAPA is to promote inclusive agricultural productivity growth, improved nutritional outcomes and enhanced livelihood resilience, through improved policy enabling environments. One way this goal is being achieved is through the enhancement of national capacity to generate and analyze data for evidence-based and improved policy decision making within the Agriculture Sector. In line with this goal, and sequel to the outcome of needs assessment, a cost-benefit analysis (CBA) training was organized for relevant stakeholders in Niger State, covering targeted Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) and relevant Commodity Associations.
