The Nigeria Strategy Support Program aims to:
- enhance knowledge through information, data, and tools for the analysis, design, and implementation of pro-poor, gender-sensitive, and environmentally sustainable agricultural and rural development polices and strategies in Nigeria;
- strengthen the capacity of government agencies, research institutions, and others to carry out and use applied research for agricultural and rural polices and strategies; and
- improve communication between policymakers, policy analysts, and those who benefit from agricultural and rural development policy.
NSSP carries out these objectives currently through the Agricultural Policy Support Facility (APSF), a project undertaken in collaboration with the Nigerian Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources and funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).
