IFAD Country Programme - ACHIEVEMENTS
Key Challenges and Issues1.Private sector enabling environment2.Value chains and sub-sectors3.Enterprises and producer groupsNo integration of different programmes resources; wasted synergiesUnclear framework for Public Private Partnership agreementsNo grant framework to support key enterprises or farmer groupsWeak financial services for rural small producers and tradersNo developed structures for provision of agricultural and BDS services through private agentsNo market identification support system, weak BDS system
Recommendations to GovernmentStrengthen market-oriented approach in local level. Encourage reforms in SEDP planning with strategic engagement of the private sector and value chain application. Support market access of the poor through infrastructure improvements and market identification;Improve rural financial and business development services. Enable outreach of financial services to rural smallholder groups, small producers and traders. Identify and empower BDS delivering institutions;Base regional strategic planning on applied research. Support region specific applied research on commodity chains, climate change adaptation, involvement of private sector actors, impact of savings and lending, Public Private Partnerships and other key aspects of rural development. Take effective use of research in policy design and implementation;Create synergies between programmes. Use lessons learnt from international support and incorporate those in nation wide programs such as the NTP-NRD. A possible concrete first step: adapt and implement M&E framework of IFAD projects to NTPP-NRD;Specify poverty reduction efforts for regions. Adopt different strategies for regions in view of poverty levels, socio-economic and agro-ecological conditions.
