The team comprised Álvaro Espinoza, a local consultant, and Steve Wiggins from ODI. It focused on two research questions: – What has been learned from efforts to achieve coherence between agricultural and social protection policies and programmes? – How can these lessons and insights contribute to achieving more and be tter coordination between the sectors in order to combat hunger and poverty?

    Strengthening coherence between agriculture and social protection: Mexico country case study report 2016
    Also available in:

    This study took place in Mexico in 2015. It was led by Gustavo Gordillo along with co-researchers Obed Méndez and Santiago Ruy Sánchez. The report focuses on two core research questions: 1) What are the current experiences of achieving coherence between Mexico’s agricultural and social protection policies and programmes? 2) What lessons and insights do these experiences hold for achieving more and better coordination between the two sectors? The case of Mexico lends itself to an exploration of t he linkages between social protection and agriculture for several reasons: public spending in the rural sector in Mexico represents a significant fiscal category. In fact, between 2003 and 2013, the budget for spending in this sector was increased by 170 percent. Despite significant changes in recent decades, some programmes have achieved broad coverage and maintained their continuity; in 2013, Prospera, which has been operating for 16 years, reached 5.9 million households, and ProAgro, which ha s been active for 20 years, reached 2.7 million farmers. Social policy and production development or promotion policies – in the broad sense of the term – have been the object of academic scrutiny and ongoing national and international assessments. Both policy domains encompass a wide range of actions and tools involving varying degrees of convergence. Notwithstanding the country’s limited experience with intersectoral and vertical (decentralizing) coordination schemes, policy instruments for d riving coherence are on the table, and those instruments can be analysed and assessed.

    No results found.

    This study took place in Lesotho (in Maseru, and in Maseru and Leribe districts) between 27 April and 7 May 2015. The study was led by Martina Ulrichs of the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) along with Dr Matseliso Mphale of the National University of Lesotho with assistance from Borja Miguelez and Mokitinyane Nthimo of the FAO Lesotho Country Office. The project focuses on two core questions: • What are the current experiences of achieving coherence between Lesotho’s agricultural and social protection policies and programmes? • What lessons and insights do these experiences hold for achieving more and better coordination between the two sectors? The Lesotho study sets out to explore these questions by exploring, in particular, the potential for linkages between the two sectors in a context characterized by large-scale, self-targeted agricultural programmes in the agricultural sector and social assistance programmes framed around a life-course approach in the social protection doma in.
