IFAD commends IITA-led Zero Hunger Initiative’s mid-term successes
The IITA-led Zero Hunger Initiative (ZHI), funded by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), organized a three-day, mid-term review of the Agricultural Transformation in the Nigerian Federal States and Togolese Regions towards achieving Zero Hunger Project in three states in Nigeria and two regions in Togo. The meeting took place from 22 to 24 September at IITA’s Ibadan headquarters and appraised the project’s progress.
The mid-term workshop highlighted the project’s first phase successes and sustainability plans while outlining the action points for completion.
ZHI is focusing on goal two of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN) to eradicate food insecurity in West Africa. The project, being implemented by IITA and AfricaRice, is in collaboration with the governments of Nigeria and the Republic of Togo.
