Africa Fertilizer and Soil Health Summit

7-9 May 2024 | Nairobi, Kenya, Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) | In-person

The Africa Fertilizer and Soil Health summit will be held to deliberate on Africa’s recent widespread decades-long decline in soil quality of farmland – a phenomenon that continues today and negatively impacts the agricultural production capacity and food security in the continent.

The Objective of the Summit is to bring together all relevant stakeholders to highlight the crucial role of fertilizer and soil health in stimulating sustainable pro-poor productivity growth in African agriculture and to agree on an African Fertilizer and Soil Health Action Plan, as well as the Soils Initiative for Africa.

A 10-year Action Plan is expected to be endorsed. This will aim to deliver concrete recommendations for steps to be taken by African leaders and stakeholders in the next decade. The Action Plan will provide a focus for new policies and investments that will enable farmers to work toward re-building soil health and ultimately increase yield responses and profitability of fertilizers. It is also expected that the Action Plan will be endorsed by leading private and public sector partners across all African countries, with the following:

  1. Nairobi Declaration
  2. 10-year Action Plan
  3. Soil Initiative for Africa (SIA)
  4. Mechanism to finance the Action Plan (post-Summit implementation process).

The summit  is expected to bring together the African Heads of State, high-ranking government officials, senior policy makers, private-sector players and civil society organizations. Other participants will include representatives of farmer organizations and development agencies, including NGOs, scholars and scientists, and representatives of leading donor organizations.
