Within the Grow Africa (GA) framework, Yara in 2012 entered Letters of Intent with the governments of Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana and Tanzania, committing to invest in agricultural development.

The GA interacted with the G8 on establishing the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, where 49 companies – including Yara – committed more than USD 3 billion in investments in African agriculture.
