The enormity of varieties of agricultural commodities in Nigeria cannot be overemphasized. Agricultural commodities such as oil palm, cocoa, groundnut, rice, maize, wheat, soybean, cassava, sweet potato, cattle, fish, poultry, etc. have potentials that could be developed into value chains. Agricultural Commodity Value Chain Development (AVCD) enhances local and foreign investments into inputs, agricultural commodity production, transportation, processing, warehousing, and marketing. This provides agribusiness opportunities for wealth creation, employment generation, income generation, poverty reduction and food security amongst others. However, there is no established agricultural value chains in Nigeria and that various agro-ecological zones are endowed with different agricultural commodities that could be developed into value chains. Hence, there is the need to fully utilize these opportunities.

Workshop Objectives

  • Explain the concept of AVCD for agribusiness.

  • Describe the roles and responsibilities of different AVCD stakeholders in the chains; and
