Food and Agriculture Policy Decision Analysis

The FAPDA web-based tool is one of the major components of FAPDA activities.

The tool was developed in 2011 with the support of the Government of the Kingdom of Spain so as to provide an electronic repository for food and agriculture policy decisions.
 The aim is to serve all stakeholders such as governments, development partners, regional economic organizations, civil society organizations, researchers, policy makers and the private sector.

Between 2008 and 2011, more than 6000 policy decisions have been gathered and then consolidated on this web-based tool which allows for the identification of policy trends and the analysis of policy mixes and policy coherence.

It also facilitates policy harmonization and informs the policy debate at national, regional and global level.

Policy decisions in the tool are classified based on the FAPDA Policy Classification and each policy inserted is properly verified and documented with the respective source of information.
