Government of Ireland 2022 Africa Agri-food Development Programme

The Ireland Africa Agri-food Development Programme is a joint initiative by the Ireland Ministry for Agriculture, Food and the Marine and the Ministry of State at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade to support partnerships between Irish and African agri-food companies.

The Objective of the AADP is to develop partnerships between the Irish Agri-Food Sector and African countries to support sustainable growth of the local food industry, build markets for local produce and support mutual trade between Ireland and Africa.

It is intended that any investment by the AADP will be catalytic support with co-funding from the private sector. The fund is designed to leverage greater expertise, experience and investment from the Irish agri-food sector and projects should demonstrate results with a long-term developmental impact that will ultimately lead to sustainable benefits through investment by the private sector.

Irish agri-food expertise is extremely wide-ranging and examples of suitable AADP projects include:

  • Business development
  • Production system
  • Technology Transfer
