Human Capital Development for Agricultural Business in Nigeria

An investment in people is vital to transforming businesses in Nigeria so a vibrant and entrepreneurially-driven agricultural sector can flourish. Previous failures in large private-sector projects in Nigeria have resulted from the low-level investment into human capital development of agricultural businesses; economic instability and security. The development of the agricultural sector and smallholder farmer requires collaboration among governmental policymakers, educational institutions and private industry. The talent gap in science must be closed in order for a new generation of agricultural business entrepreneurs to transform the numerous challenges into opportunities.
