Agricultural Growth Program (AGP)

The AGP’s primary objective is to increase agricultural productivity and market access for key crop and livestock products in targeted woredas, with increased participation of women and youth. This five-year program plans to reach about 1.9 million households in 93 woredas of the four major regions in Ethiopia.

It has two main components:

1) Agricultural production and commercialization, which aims to strengthen the capacity of farmers and their service providers to scale up best practices, and to adopt improved technologies in production and processing, and to strengthen marketing and processing of selected commodities through engagement with private sector stakeholders

2) Small-scale rural infrastructure development and management, which seeks to support the construction, rehabilitation, and/or improvement, and management of small-scale rural infrastructure in order to increase productivity and efficiency of key value chains by improving access to markets.
