FAO in Nigeria

The Country Programme Framework 2013 - 2017 for Nigeria describes FAO’s medium term assistance priorities and results, derived from nationally defined priorities and objectives, to be achieved over the five-year period of the country’s programming cycle. In order to ensure its national ownership, the CPF has been prepared in close collaboration with key Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and major development partners. The CPF describes the five broad priority areas and outcomes for FAO assistance in the country.
