Dimieari Von Kemedi

Managing Director

Alluvial Agriculture, Nigeria


Dimieari Von Kemedi is the co-founder of Alluvial Agriculture, a new highly scalable private sector response to decades of failure by governments and NGOs to tackle one of the world’s most pressing issues: food security. As a student leader during the 1990s struggles, Kemedi extended Ken Saro-Wiwa’s struggle across the Delta region by creating “Our Niger Delta,” arguing for peaceful negotiation. Kemedi risked his life by journeying deep into the militants’ heartland to negotiate the first Niger Delta peace accord between President Obasanjo and militant leader Asari Dokubo. Kemedi later crafted a second, much broader, peace negotiation in 2008 between President Yar’Adua and several militant leaders including Tompolo.

Together with his team and partners, Kemedi is building Alluvial into a strong and diversified agriculture and commodities business with scope to expand across Africa. Prior to founding Alluvial, Kemedi worked in community development, nature conservation and conflict management. He has served a number of senior level expert and consulting positions including with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the UN Panel of Experts on Liberia, Statoil and the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley. Kemedi holds a degree in law from the Rivers State University of Science & Technology, Port Harcourt, and was Environmental Politics Visiting Fellow at the University of California, Berkeley.
