Green Imperative Project, Nigeria, 2018

Born from a MoU (Memoradum of Understanding) signed between the Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) and the Government of Nigeria in 2018 and has the strategic support of the Embassy of Brazil in that country.

Objective: Agricultural technological cooperation, between Brazil and Nigeria, for the development of the largest food production project in the African continent. The project prioritizes the development of sustainable, low-carbon agriculture, and aims to develop local production of basic food for the population. The Green Imperative Project is a high priority project for the Nigerian government, and aims to increase food security for the population and decrease rural exodus, contributing to social peace. Included in this project is the launch of the International Center for Innovation and Agricultural Technology Transfer (CIITTA, in portuguese) in Uberaba, Minas Gerais, Brazil.
