How MAFAP information is used

The system provides regularly updated analyses to African governments seeking to:

  • improve policy frameworks for producers and consumers;
  • prioritize investments to increase agricultural production and improve farmers’ incomes and food security;
  • better target the share of the national budget devoted to agriculture and rural development; and
  • more effectively allocate the agricultural budget’s resources.

Development partners can use this information to:

  • improve policy advice; and
  • identify investment opportunities that will have a positive impact on agricultural sector performance.
