Monitoring and Analysing Food and Agricultural Policies (MAFAP): Database

Since 2009, FAO’s MAFAP programme has been working in several developing countries to create sustainable policy monitoring systems and carry out a consistent set of policy and public expenditure analyses across a wide range of agricultural value chains.

MAFAP works with government institutions, research organizations and other partners to establish a community of practice on policy measurement, monitoring and analysis by developing institutional capacities to systematically analyse government policies and their effects.

MAFAP analyses are used to inform targeted food and agricultural policy reforms that will result in a more conducive environment for agricultural investment and productivity growth, especially for smallholder farmers.

MAFAP’s resulting quantitative indicators are comparable across commodities, countries and years. They provide sound evidence to support informed policy dialogue at national, regional and international levels and can therefore be used to advocate for policy reforms when and where they are needed. Moreover, the common set of indicators makes it easier to understand how different food and agricultural policies work in various contexts.

MAFAP works on:

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.
