USAID-Inma: Five Years of Agricultural Growth in Iraq

In 2007, USAID initiated a comprehensive assistance program in Iraq called Inma, which means "growth" in Arabic, to support the development of agribusinesses and agriculture in Iraq. Activities directly supported by USAID-Inma generated $181 million in gross sales and created over 15,000 full and part time jobs. The introduction of new technologies, genetics and cultural practices coupled with a massive training program has facilitated rapid growth of Iraqi fish, poultry and off-season vegetable production.
