    Since the 1970s, FAO has helped governments measure the effects of their policies on agricultural producers and other value chain actors. FAO’s Monitoring and Analysing Food and Agricultural Policies (MAFAP) starts in 2010. The programme assists the development of sustainable policy monitoring systems in developing countries. These systems aim to provide reliable information for evidence-based policy dialogue and decisionmaking at the national, regional and international levels. Such information is already being used by policy-makers to reform policies and address the challenges they face. FAO has successfully partnered with government institutions and research organizations in several African countries, to create policy monitoring systems and to carry out a consistent set of policy and public expenditure analyses across a wide range of agricultural value chains (MAFAP phase I).

    The Monitoring and Analysing Food and Agricultural Policies (MAFAP) programme is a leading policy support initiative at FAO that works with countries in Africa to strategically prioritize, reform and implement policies on food and agriculture. By monitoring and analysing public budgets and trade and market policies, MAFAP guides governments to repurpose their agricultural support to accelerate the transformation of agrifood systems. It also collaborates with policymakers to identify priorities for policy and investment reforms in key commodity value chains and supports implementing policy changes so that agrifood systems can deliver affordable healthy diets to all and inclusive markets for farmers.

    An enabling policy environment is a key condition for agricultural development, food security and broader poverty reduction. Despite this, government policy analysts and decision makers in developing countries often lack the capacity to generate reliable and economically robust ex post evidence on, and ex ante assessments of, the impact of their policies on farmers, other local value chain actors, consumers and the wider economy. As a result, agricultural policies are often incoherent and inconsistent with the overarching agricultural sector goals stated in national strategies and investment plans. FAO has been implementing Phase I of the initiative Monitoring and Analysing Food and Agricultural Policies (MAFAP I) since 2009. In that time, it has successfully worked with national government policy analysts and policy makers to create policy monitoring systems and a consistent set of policy and public expenditure analyses across a wide range of agricultural value chains in ten countries. Having identified and assessed in the first phase of the initiative some of the key policy constraints affecting agricultural producers, MAFAP II was designed to carry the process forward, while also supporting governments to develop options for reforming problematic policies, with a view to further incentivizing and serving value chain actors, in particular smallholder farmers.
