Abstract
HortiNigeria recently completed its inception phase, marking a significant step in its mission to transform Nigeria’s horticulture sector. Over the past eight months, the program has achieved several milestones aimed at boosting productivity and income through eco-efficient production practices and promoting climate-smart actions and innovative technologies among entrepreneurial farmers, particularly women and youth. Key accomplishments include registering over 8,000 farmers, training more than 7,000 farmers in Kaduna and Kano states, establishing 20 institutional partnerships, identifying 20 innovative technologies for piloting in Ogun and Oyo states, and brokering five business-to-business linkages to enhance market accessibility. Additionally, HortiNigeria has engaged in various activities to strengthen small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) through networking, build agri-business clusters, and foster public and private sector dialogue to resuscitate policy platforms. The program’s success underscores the importance of collaboration and networking in achieving sustainable agricultural development and economic growth.
