Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa
Powell Tate is working with the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) to coordinate communications and advocacy efforts in the United States, Canada, Europe and on the African continent on food security issues in Africa. AGRA works with smallholder farmers in 13 nations to provide improved seeds and soil inputs, research, training, markets policies and innovative financing to increase agricultural productivity and income. Based in Nairobi, Kenya, AGRA is chaired by former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan. Our work with AGRA includes providing strategic guidance, message development, branding, print and digital communications, media relations, advertising, speechwriting and coordinating visits by AGRA officials to the United States, Europe and Africa. We are also working to educate governments, NGOs, corporations and foundations about AGRA and secure interest in supporting its innovative programs in Africa. In addition, we are elevating AGRA’s profile and reputation within important multilateral development institutions, and its presence at global development summits and conferences.
