Association of Organic Agriculture Practitioners of Nigeria (NOAN) is a non-governmental organization created to serve as an umbrella body for all stakeholders involved in organic agriculture in Nigeria. The secretariat of NOAN is located at the city of Ibadan, Nigeria.
Membership is drawn from farmers, scientists, processors, exporters, individuals, Institutions, NGOs and organizations that are key players in the organic agriculture sector in Nigeria.
NOAN also serves as a link body between organic agriculture stakeholders in Nigeria and international bodies interested in organic agriculture. The activities of NOAN are hinged on these four key thematic areas:
- Capacity building

These areas are managed by committee members who are well experienced in such matters.
The Vision of NOAN is to improve the quality of urban and rural livelihoods through the adoption of organic agriculture in Nigeria.
