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.

Where we work

What we do

Policy reform options
MAFAP supports decision makers in partner countries to articulate costs and benefits of alternative policy options to promote suitable reforms.

Policy dialogue and engagement
MAFAP is actively engaging with policy makers to ensure the analytical results and recommendations feed into national policy processes. 

Agricultural public expenditure analysis
While building monitoring and analytical capacity in partner countries, MAFAP measures the level and composition of public expenditures in support of food and agriculture.

Price incentives analysis
MAFAP measures how different policies and markets affect the prices farmers receive for their products and the prices consumers pay. 

Policy coherence
MAFAP tracks public expenditure related to agriculture and measures the impact of policies on the prices of key agricultural commodities. 

Policy performance
MAFAP uses a set of indicators that help understand how different policies work in various contexts and how they affect agricultural value chain dynamics and production incentives in different countries.
