Government, private sector, and research institution stakeholders at a VIFAA Kenya Fertilizer Dashboard co-design workshop

Over the last year, Development Gateway has worked in close partnership with Africafertilizer.org(AFO), the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), the Kenya Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries, County governments, numerous private sector companies, and development partners to understand the cycle of demand, supply, and use of Kenya’s fertilizer data. Together we have co-designed a dashboard to address key decision-making needs, prioritizing data such as fertilizer price, production and consumption data, and identifying new opportunities to collaborate in closing data gaps.

The interactive, user-friendly site enables users to:

  • View key data on fertilizer price, use, availability, and policy in one place;
  • Interact with different products and crops across years of data; and
  • Download data in a variety of formats.

The Kenya Dashboard is the first of three, with dashboards for Nigeria and Ghana soon to follow. Check back for further details!

For a deeper dive into the indicators on the dashboard, read blog 1 and blog 2 in this series.

Improving Land and Crop Use Data in Nigeria – The VIFAA Innovation Fund

Our Visualizing Insights for Fertilizer in African Agriculture (VIFAA) Program launched an Innovation Fund to address data shortages relating to total crop production. Building on its track record of mapping land cover, Quantitative Engineering Design (QED) was selected to tackle the challenge of mapping Nigeria’s croplands. Through the Innovation Fund, DG and partners will use the resulting data and maps to answer two questions: (a) what is the total cropland under production in Nigeria and (b) what is the cropland under production by crop type.
