International Fertilizer Manufacturers Association

International Fertilizer Manufacturers Association (IFA), France, is the only association representing the global fertilizer industry. IFA has the best available global database on N fertilizer capacity, production, trade and consumption for the main fertilizer products and raw materials. IFA encourages adoption of best available technologies in fertilizer production in order to improve energy use efficiency and reduce GHG emissions. It also supports development and adoption of fertilizer best management practices in order to enhance the use efficiency and effectiveness of fertilizers, and promotes smallholders' access to fertilizers in Africa and other areas with underuse. IFA has more than 500 members throughout the world. As such it can help reaching out to the global fertilizer industry to stimulate their engagement in INMS activities where needed (e.g. in regional demonstrations), and to disseminate the main outcomes of INMS.
