Big, Sweet Tomatoes - Food Security and Productive Sanitation

The need for increased crop yields in Africa is driving farmers’ demand for fertiliser. Productive sanitation can play a key role in meeting this demand. This event will have a special focus on the IFAD-funded productive sanitation project in Niger which shows how agricultural productivity can be a driver for sanitation.
