Nigeria International Food Summit, 21- 22nd July, 2009 Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria

Driving Nigeria towards Food Self-Sufficiency

The Summit will be an essential forum for all those who wish to see Nigeria as a self-sufficient food producing nation, with a thriving, internationally renowned, food and farming industry. The food crisis has highlighted the importance of food production and at a time when oil revenues have collapsed Nigeria must seize this opportunity to modernise and reinvigorate her agricultural industries. Nigeria remains a predominately agrarian society, with 60% of the population engaged in agriculture and yet it only accounts for a third of national GDP and 2% of foreign exports. Furthermore Nigeria is a net importer of food, including staples such as rice where it produces just 500,000 tonnes with an annual consumption of 2,500,000 tonnes. It is estimated that there is 14,000,000 hectares of unused agricultural land in Nigeria so there is enormous scope for increasing productivity and output. Oyo State, the 'pace setter' State home to the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, has determined to lead the way.

The Summit will identify specific actionable recommendations for the public and private sectors. In every case we will be trying to identify solutions that are:

• Market focused

• Sustainable

• Innovative

• Open to partnership between local and international businesses

• Easy and quick to implement
