    Despite latent domestic and international market potential for a number of Jamaican agricultural products, many agricultural value chains in the country are characterized by weak connectivity among actors, fragmented coordination, and insufficient resources and technical support to farmers In addition, the lack of professional farmers organizations and limited capacity of many smallholder farmers to be able to deliver consistent quality and quantity of produce required by buyers has also held back the development of high potential subsectors These persistent issues in priority subsectors act as disincentives for private financing along key value chains Private investments are essential to promote and drive competitive industries in a range of fresh and value added Jamaican agricultural products Against this background, the MoAF 1 which is at the centre of promoting the development of competitiveness in the agricultural sector, required support to strengthen the skills and hands on experience of staff to implement systematic and market oriented sector development plans Therefore, in collaboration with the MoAF the project aimed to improve the capacity of key stakeholders to better meet current market requirements, increase delivery, and/or develop new market opportunities or products as well as to facilitate the establishment of new public private partnerships ( that would link lead firms with smallholder farmers, to promote agricultural development.

    Aquaculture production by Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries has been around five percent oftotal fish production in recent years. In most Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS) aquaculture production is nearly insignificant, and the import of fishand fisheries products has risen by 35 percent in just overa decade. The growing population in the region, as well asa more demanding tourism industry and the ongoing promotion of healthier lifestyles and diets, has increased the demand for healthy, safe and high quality food, including fish and fisheries and aquaculture products. Public and private sector investments are required if the aquaculture sector is to develop in a viable manner inthe Caribbean. The Governments of Antigua and Barbuda,Barbados, Bahamas and Saint Kitts and Nevis assign high priority to the development of the aquaculture sector,and in view of this, requested that FAO provide technical assistance to develop their aquaculture sectors. The project aimed to contribute to more efficient and inclusive food and agricultural systems in the four target countries, through sustainable development and management of the aquaculture sector, and the development of selected value chains.

    This publication was written by the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) as part of the project “AgrInvest-Food Systems: Enabling inclusive and efficient private sector investment in agrifood systems”, implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in partnership with the ECDPM. The paper presents the methodology, and related lessons, that emerged from the AgrInvest-FS project to promote private investment into food systems aligned with the SDGs, by applying a fully-fledged food systems approach to value chain investment processes and by leveraging public funds and blended finance. In five stages, the use of this Methodology can lead to the launch of policy packages, inclusive multi-actor platforms, and funding opportunities, for effectively scaling up the quantity and quality of finance for sustainable food systems, with a focus on access to finance for local food system actors (SMEs, smallholder farmers, women) and local financial intermediaries.
