Monitoring and Analysing Food and Agricultural Policies

Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security, FAO in Nigeria and the MAFAP programme brought together over 35 government officials and policymakers from several institutions for a workshop in Abuja.
The MAFAP programme was invited to talk about data and policy monitoring during the Policy Analysis for Sustainable and Healthy Foods in African Retail Markets AERC workshop in Addis Ababa.
Did you know we have a data hub on public expenditure on food and agriculture and commodity price incentives in many African countries?

The Monitoring and Analysing Food and Agricultural Policies (MAFAP) programme, within the Agrifood Economics and Policy Division at FAO, is a leading policy support initiative that has been working since 2009 with mainly African countries to strategically prioritize, reform and implement agrifood policies for inclusive agricultural transformation. 

MAFAP does this by supporting governments with agrifood policy monitoring on public expenditure on food and agriculture and price incentives for key country commodities, with policy prioritization to optimise their public budgets and prioritize their investments in commodities, and with agrifood policy reforms to address issues on food and nutrition, pricing, marketing, strategy development and trade.
