In the dynamic landscape of global challenges like climate change, population growth, and resource depletion, the importance of sustainable practices in agribusiness cannot be overstated. Nigeria, with its rich agricultural heritage, holds a unique position in the quest for food security, environmental preservation, and economic prosperity. Embracing this vision, aligning agribusiness value-chains with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) emerges as a powerful strategy for future-proofing the sector.
At the recent Nigeria Sustainable Agriculture Conference held on the 19th of July, the NABC’s Project Officer based in Nigeria, Ms. Fauziyya Sadiq, shared valuable insights during her presentation on “Future Proofing Agribusiness Value-Chains through SDGs.” This conference brought together stakeholders from various sectors, emphasising the need to address pressing challenges faced by the Nigerian agricultural sector. The key areas of focus included sustainable production, farms and produce certification, and compliance with global market requirements.
