The Project objectives are to expand the supply and distribution of fertilizer by more than 200,000 metric tonnes by leveraging investments. The grantee is the African Fertilizer and Agribusiness Partnership (AFAP).
AFAP will target companies, which will be seeking funding ranging from US$10- 40 million.
The target beneficiaries are the (2 to 4) Fertilizer Production or Blending Facilities, (10) Joint Ventures and (10) Hub agro-input dealer networks to serve smallholder farmers and (1000) youth and women with jobs in the agribusiness sector. AFAP will facilitate the creation of at least 1,000 jobs for youth and women via those supporting business units to the market-oriented hub agro- input dealers.
AFAP is a partnership between a number of African and international development partners with the goal of increasing private sector participation and investment (both financial and technical) in order to increase the supply of affordable fertilizer to smallholder farmers.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AfDB
The Independent Review Mechanism (IRM), which is administered by the Compliance Review and Mediation Unit (CRMU), is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an African Development Bank (AfDB)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a dispute resolution dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the AfDB complied with its policies to prevent environmental and social harms. You can submit a complaint electronically by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or email@example.com.
