Agriculture & Food

With 40 years’ experience, NIRAS has a proven capacity to successfully implement large, multi-sector programmes covering agriculture, food security and rural development in challenging and fragile working environments.

We recognize the role of agriculture as a driver of inclusive and green growth, in particular through improving the efficiency of resource use, reducing environmental impact, and encouraging research, development and new technologies to improve productivity. We provide technical expertise for both crop and livestock production, covering the whole value chain from table to farm combining the consumers interests and having farming as a business.

We also believe that sustainable improvement of the living conditions of people in rural areas requires sound policies at the macro level. NIRAS has experience in supporting policy and institutional reforms in several countries. We strengthen the capacity of ministries and public and private actors at national, provincial and district levels and support governments and private sector in creating enabling business environments for rural investments.

Having supported more than 30 large-scale, long-term projects related to agribusiness and small scale food processing, we rank as one of the leading consultancy companies within the field.
