Agricultural transformation is a shared interest of the public and private sectors and presents a unique opportunity for partnership. In the New Alliance, African governments have committed to develop or revise policies that will facilitate responsible private investment in agriculture in support of smallholder farmers. Each government decides how to oversee and implement commitments in its country.
