Take our agriculture quiz and win prizes!

One of the ways that ONE holds governments to account on their commitments to the world’s poorest people is by publishing reports and sharing them with other organisations, governments and the media. Recently, our policy team did just that with their report, A Growing Opportunity: Measuring Investments in African Agriculture.

Basically, it checks up on the governments who made promises to support agriculture and food security in Africa and answers questions like ‘Which countries have been keeping their promises? Which have not? What more is there to be done?’

Do you think you know the answers to those questions? Test yourself with our quiz. All the answers can be found in the report.
