    A brief overview of FAO's Monitoring and Analysing Food and Agricultural Policies (MAFAP) programme 2022

    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.

    Governments have turned to FAO for support in identifying and assessing options for reforming policies on food and agriculture through the “Monitoring and Analysing Food and Agricultural Policies” (MAFAP) programme. While the first phase of FAO’s efforts concentrated more on conducting policy analysis and measuring public expenditures, this second phase built on the first phase’s outcomes to support policy reforms across Southern Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. MAFAP has been found to be an effective and well-positioned influencer of policy reforms in the agricultural sector. However, there are areas of improvement for this programme, including: i) increased resources to better address increasing policy support demand; ii) more strategic planning; iii) more formal institutionalization and more engagement with civil society and the private sector; iv) more coherence at country level in conducting preliminary analysis; and v) improvement to its knowledge management system in order not to lose its institutional memory.

    Agricultural development and food security require an enabling environment for agricultural producers, consumers, local agribusinesses and other value chain actors to operate effectively. The national policy framework of a country is a key component of that enabling environment. However, policymakers in developing countries often lack economically robust and credible evidence about the impact of their past and current policies, as well as of potential policies that they may wish to implement, on agricultural transformation and its degree of inclusivity. The aim of the second phase of the Monitoring and AnalysingFood and Agricultural Policies programme(MAFAP II) was to tackle the problem of weak capacity by establishing sustainable agricultural policy monitoring systems in the partner countries and by supporting an inclusive dialogue and reform process to boost an inclusive agricultural transformation.
