Subsidy Soil Fertility Programme

On 24 January 2023, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs published a call for grant proposals for the Soil Fertility programme: one for Sahel/West Africa and one for East and Central Africa. Organisations with experience in achieving sustainable management of soil fertility in a way that contributes to ecologically sustainable improvements in food productivity and to increased resilience of small-scale food producers and/or pastoralists in Sub Sahara Africa may apply for a grant until 31 March 2023.

Applications must be submitted using the application form and accompanied by the additional information and documents stipulated in the form.

The grant policy framework sets out:

  • Who may apply for the grant
