odiversity, and triggering improved management of Africas wealth of natural and nature-based assets, said Mr. Achim Steiner, Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme, an AGRA Soil Health Program partner.

In addition to working directly to restore soil fertility, AGRAs Soil Health Program will encourage the development of policies that support soil health and protect Africas endowment of natural resources. The Program will work to strengthen the capacity of African institutions to improve the information, education and training offered to farmers, extension workers, students and scientists on a range of issues related to soil health.

To ensure that the Program is working as effectively as possible, AGRA will monitor its impacts, including its economic and environmental impacts, and regularly consult with its partners in governments, regional organizations (like the New Partnership for Africas Development or NEPAD), environmental agencies, civil society organizations, and farmers and farmer organizations, according to Ngongi.

This program gives us renewed hope because with improved soils and seeds, we will boost our yields and therefore feed ourselves and use the surplus to improve our income and living conditions. We welcome this initiative by AGRA, said Kenyan farmer Philip Kiriro.
