Description

Nigerian Women Agro Allied Farmers Association (NIWAAFA) is an indigenous farmers group led by women as a pioneer women group in Nigeria. We are practicing farmers and Agro-business women. We work on Ecosystem-based, environment-friendly agriculture. We are in 36 States and FCT of Nigeria.


Niwaafa is a non-governmental, rural-based national association of women farmers. Niwaafa currently has a membership base of over 6700 members.


Niwaafa practices environment-friendly farming and in 2012 launched a campaign on Gender and Environmental Friendly Agriculture. Today, Niwaafa works on climate change and its effects on agriculture and is part of the team that formulated the Nigerian Climate Change National Adaptation Strategy in 2013. Since 2014 Niwaafa's work has been based on ecosystem adaptation for food security in Africa.


Niwaafa members include farmers in crops, poultry, and fisheries, all of whom process and market their own farm produce.
