    The Evaluation of the financial support by the World Bank Group with the Development Grant Facility to support the “Partnership for Agricultural Market Information System (AMIS)” was conducted in 2016-2017. The objectives, outcomes and activities of the DGF Partnership were relevant and aligned to the higher order goal of improving transparency of the global agriculture markets. It was recognized that not many other initiatives allow this kind of partnership and technical exchange among the member international organizations. The added value of AMIS products, as expressed by respondents, is linked to their perceptions of the reliability of the data sources and information sharing on methodologies used. The evaluation assessed that the DGF resources were used economically and the initiative also leveraged additional resources during the DGF implementation period. The DGF funding, by being well aligned with core AMIS needs and mobilized in a timely way, has been able to reach the Bank’s objective of “catalyzing partnerships through convening and building coalitions, and raising funds”. It made a direct contribution to AMIS by strengthening the Secretariat and its functions, achievements that can be maintained on the condition that other sources of funding are mobilized.

    For smallholder agriculture to prosper and transform itself, access to rural services is essential. Rural services that enable smallholders to overcome constraints to increase their productivity, manage their farms as a sustainable business, link to inputs and outputs markets and act collectively to improve their livelihoods are a first line of action to reduce rural poverty. Undoubtedly, improving rural services has long been on the development agenda. Yet, ensuring equitable access to rural se rvices remains a challenge that governments and their development partners need to address to improve rural livelihoods and overcome rural poverty. The pluralistic Market-Oriented Services (MOS) programme aims to address the critical role of rural services in enhancing agriculture-based livelihoods and reducing rural poverty . Emphasis is placed on advisory, financial and support services needed for smallholders to improve productivity, gain access to markets and increase their income to move o ut of poverty. This note outlines the conceptual framework for the pluralistic market-oriented services (MOS) programme, and briefly describes its objective, main dimensions and fields of action.
