Côte d’Ivoire is the host of the African Green Revolution Forum (AGRF) 2017

Agriculture is the backbone of Côte d’Ivoire’s economy. The country’s robust growth is driven by sustained investment in agriculture and smallholder farmers with the sector contributing 26 percent of GDP, 40 percent of all export revenue, close 75 percent of non-oil export revenue and employing close to 60 percent of the population. The 2016-2020 National Development Plan (PND) aimed at guiding the country into emerging nation status by 2020 considers agriculture as a key pillar and specifically calls for an increase in agricultural output.
