About the 50x3030 Initiative:

The 50x2030 Initiative to Close the Agricultural Data Gap is a multi-partner programme that seeks to bridge the global agricultural data gap by transforming country data systems in 50 countries by 2030.

This unprecedented initiative aims to improve the availability of official national statistics on the agricultural sector by building stronger national  agricultural survey programmes. The data collected through such surveys are used by national Governments to design and monitor national policies and by the development community to monitor the status agriculture at regional and global level.

The Initiative is implemented through a unique partnership between the World Bank, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) leads the implementation of the data production component of 50x2030. FAO provides technical support to countries in the development and implementation of integrated agricultural survey, for the production of more and better agricultural data.

With FAO’s support, countries produce and disseminate as a public good the latest statistics related to the national agricultural sector, providing data users, analysts and policy makers with up to date information for data analysis and informed decision-making.
