Energy Access for Enhanced Agricultural Productivity in Northern Nigeria
Agriculture is the predominant occupation in rural Nigeria. However, the country is often plagued by food shortages as a result of lack of electricity for post harvest processing, irrigation farming, and storage. In such rural and conflict affected settings, there is no grid power, and access to electricity for enhanced agro-yields are non-existent. Lack of access to markets is a hindering factor to economic viability for small holders.
