ESAF: East and Southern Africa Fertiliser Trade Platform
– The East and Southern Africa region has 22 countries, 10 of which the International
Monetary Fund considers to be some of the fastest growing economies in the world. However, with this economic growth the
region continues to be plagued by malnutrition, hunger and poverty. The region - like so many on the continent - has vast
amounts of arable land, but due to low agricultural productivity and poor soil management by the population, agriculture has
not ameliorated poverty and hunger among the rural poor where 70% of the population resides.
Therefore, investing in improved agricultural production is vital to the region's economic transformation to bring about lasting
solutions for alleviating poverty and achieving food security on the continent. The African Fertilizer and Agribusiness Partnership
n collaboration with the Alliance for Commodity Trade on East and Southern Africa (ACTESA) has established the East and
Southern Africa Fertilizer Trade Platform (ESAF) to facilitate and coordinate enhanced private sector investment and participation
in the procurement and distribution of fertiliser in the region.
