For more than 50 years, our results-oriented technical and project management expertise helps our partners in putting their agendas into practice. NIRAS provides technical assistance in the agriculture sector throughout Africa, South-East and Central Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America. Learn more about our services in our agriculture sector brochure.

With more than 45 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 provide technical expertise for both crop and livestock production, from farm to table, combining the consumer’s interests and the agri-business into viable and sustainable value chains.

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 R&D and new technologies to improve productivity.

Our aim is to improve rural livelihoods and create employment in the green sector. NIRAS has experience in supporting rural 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.

We have effectively implemented over 500 projects in support to farmers and farmer cooperatives, promotion of rural SMEs, development and strengthening of agricultural value chains, facilitating access to finance and strengthening food quality and safety standards across the world.
