Transforming agriculture in Ethiopia

Agriculture is crucial to Ethiopia’s food security and the livelihoods of nearly 85% of its people. And greater agricultural productivity is needed.

Accelerating agricultural growth is a critical national priority.

Synergos is strengthening leaders and institutions in Ethiopia to transform agriculture and improve the lives of smallholder farmers.

One of our partners is the Agricultural Transformation Agency (ATA), created in 2010 to promote agricultural transformation by supporting existing structures of government, the private sector, and non-governmental actors. Together with the ATA, the Ministry of Agriculture, and other partners, Synergos is helping Ethiopians come together to transform agriculture and improve lives.

Watch these videos about the ATA and important innovations in Ethiopian agriculture.
