Acknowledgement

CORAF and IFDC are very grateful to USAID West Africa Regional Mission for providing funds to develop the FeSeRWAM platform. They are similarly grateful to partners and individual experts from various countries and institutions/organizations; EnGRAIS and PAIRED project teams; and other IFDC and CORAF staff who contributed in different ways to facilitate the development of the FeSeRWAM and the Agro Inputs Packages. For this exercise to succeed, EnGRAIS and PAIRED teams adopted a participatory and inclusive approach involving stakeholders from almost all ECOWAS countries, as well as Chad and Mauritania. Participants involved were representatives of NARS; private sector fertilizer and seed associations; civil society organizations; and various publics/private sector service providers. The participants took part in one or various activities including workshops, meetings, calls, surveys, or took advantage of the opportunity to collect their own country data for the platform. We appreciate all the effort you made.
