The Monitoring and Analysing Food and Agricultural Policies (MAFAP) programme is a leading policy support initiative that works with countries in Africa to strategically prioritize, reform and implement policies on food and agriculture. 

See the Programme Overview to know more about our work.

Where we work

What we do

Policy monitoring: Public expenditure analysis

MAFAP measures the level and composition of public expenditures on food and agriculture, and also provides in-country training.

Policy monitoring: Price incentives analysis

MAFAP measures how different domestic policies and markets affect the prices farmers receive for their products and the prices consumers pay, and also provides in-country training.

Policy reform

MAFAP supports decision-makers to articulate the costs and benefits of alternative policy options to tackle policy issues to reform agrifood policies. 

Policy optimization

MAFAP supports governments with economy-wide modelling to help them prioritize investments in the agricultural sector to identify the best policies to advance their efforts towards inclusive agricultural transformation.

Policy dialogue and engagement

MAFAP actively engages with policymakers at national level to ensure analytical results and recommendations feed into country policy processes, plans and strategies.
