MAFAP supports Governments to identify, articulate and assess options for reforming food and agricultural policies. The following are the main objectives of the second phase of the programme:
- Collect, assemble and use targeted and policy-relevant data, including prices, market access costs and public expenditure, in support of the food and agricultural sector, as well as policy decisions
- Consolidate and strengthen national policy monitoring systems to measure policy effects and identify current policy 'problems' that affect the competitiveness of agricultural producers
- Articulate policy options and assess respective ex-post and ex-ante analysis to support suitable government reforms
- Engage national stakeholders and development partners in policy dialogue, as part of a more inclusive policy reform process.
