Preparation of a Sustainable Agricultural Development Strategy for Sultanate of Oman till 2030: UTF/OMA/011/OMA

A sustainable agriculture and rural development strategy for Oman

Oman’s recent economic growth still depends on hydrocarbon revenue and foreign labour. Sustainable development in the agriculture sector would increase agriculture’s contribution to the gross domestic product and employment, and enable the sector to improve Oman’s trade balance. The objective of the project was thus to support the government in analyzing the existing situation and formulating a sustainable agricultural development and rural development strategy to address the efficient and sustainable use of the scarce natural resources for the improved livelihoods of the Omani people.
