The main objective of N2Africa project is to increase biological nitrogen fixation and productivity of grain legumes among African smallholder farmers, contributing to enhanced soil fertility, improved household nutrition and increased cash income. Activities will focus on common bean, soybean, chickpea and faba bean in Ethiopia. Phase II will use the experience gained from Phase I to expand activities to reach many more farmers in Ghana and Nigeria, and extend the project to Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda (the five Core Countries) in the next 5 years (2014-2019). The N2Africa Phase II funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and led by Wageningen University together with the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). On 27-28 February 2014 the project was launched in Ethiopia. The N2Africa Phase II has five major objectives, namely:
  • Objective 1: Project strategy, coordination and implementation and capacity strengthening
  • Objective 2: Delivery and dissemination, sustainable input supply, and market access
  • Objective 3: Empower women to increase benefits from legume production
  • Objective 4: Tailor and adapt legume technologies to close yield gaps and expand the area of legume production within the farm
  • Objective 5: Enable learning and assess impacts at scale through strategic M&E
