Applications Open for Africa Agri-food Development Programme!

Deadline: 17 August 2017

Applications are open for “The Africa Agri-Food Development Programme (AADP)”, which is a joint initiative between the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

The Objective of the AADP is to develop partnerships between the Irish Agri-Food Sector and African countries to support sustainable growth of the local food industry, build markets for local produce and support mutual trade between Ireland and Africa.

The fund is designed to leverage greater expertise, experience and investment from the Irish agri-food sector and projects should demonstrate results with a long-term developmental impact that will ultimately lead to sustainable benefits through investment by the private sector.

Irish agri-food expertise is extremely wide-ranging and examples of suitable AADP projects include:

  • Business development
  • Production system
  • Technology Transfer
  • R & D
  • Project Management

Eligibility Criteria

  • The partners involved must include one Irish registered agri food company and one local commercial entity in Africa.
  • The project must be commercial in focus.
  • AADP funding will not exceed 50% of the costs of the project.
  • Projects will be supported in the following countries – Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Malawi, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia.
  • Funding from the AADF must bring about additionality and not replace existing funding.
  • AADP funding is up to a maximum up to a maximum of €250,000 per company for a full project or €100,000 for a feasibility study.
