 One in four people in Nigeria don't have enough to eat. But as the most populous country in West Africa, it plays a critical role in shaping the agenda for the region and for Africa more widely. If we get development right here, other countries can then learn and follow. So at Oxfam we focus on supporting small-scale farmers to become more efficient and productive. We support women's groups, we help farmers push the government for greater backing, we work to achieve greater investment in agriculture, and we lobby for change that will help improve food production and reduce the impact of climate change on farming.
