FAPDA - Food and Agriculture Policy Decision Analysis

FAPDA (Food and Agriculture Policy Decision Analysis) is led by the FAO’s Agricultural Development Economics Division, in collaboration with FAO Regional and Subregional Offices.

The FAPDA web-based tool is one of the major components of FAPDA activities. The tool was developed 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 2017, more than 10 000 policy decisions and more than 800 policy frameworks have been gathered and consolidated on the FAPDA 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.

Policies collected in the FAPDA tool serve as basis for analytical products developed by the initiative, such as the country fact sheets.
