Activities

Zinc Fertilizers

An important aspect of IZA’s work in Africa is to promote the use of zinc in crop nutrition & health. The Zinc Nutrient Initiative (ZNI) is one of IZA’s key flagship programs that works to address zinc deficiency in agricultural soils with the goal of increasing crop yield and making diet staples, such as corn and grains, richer in zinc themselves.

ZNI demonstration programs have been carried out in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Malawi, successfully helping farmers increase crop yields by 76% and 73%, respectively. Additional demonstration programs are now under way in Uganda, Kenya, Northern Cape and Namibia. There are plans to conduct an awareness program on zinc fertilizers in Nigeria.

General Galvanizing

IZA’s main focus is on developing the general galvanizing market in Africa through infrastructure development projects in the energy, water, transport, and communications sectors. This is being done through working with Standards organizations and other key industry stakeholders to ensure galvanized steel is the material of choice in these projects, and through capacity building and technology transfer support of local galvanizers.
