The present project focuses on carrying out the feasibility study of the Malagasy Agriculture Transformation Program, which is an initiative to support value-added sectors and job creation in Madagascar. The study should lead to the identification of a program including the preparation of at least one priority project capable of supporting and supporting the desired changes in the agricultural sector. More specifically, this study should make it possible to determine the feasibility of proposals for concrete actions to operationalize the Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Sector Plan (PSAEP), as well as the accompanying National Investment Plan. It includes the following components: (i) analysis of national supply circuits for agricultural inputs and materials; (ii) the feasibility study of innovative mechanisms for financing the agricultural sector; (iii) the diagnostic study of the potential of agricultural and agro-industrial growth poles in Madagascar and the study of value chains; (iv) the study on improving the governance of the agricultural sector; (v) organization of a forum of technical and financial partners; (vi) the formulation of the program; (vii) Audit of the accounts of the PPF.
The objective of the project is to induce the transformation of Malagasy agriculture in order to eliminate extreme poverty, food and nutritional insecurity, and contribute to making Madagascar, a net exporter of agricultural products. The specific objective is to contribute to: (i) improve agricultural productivity and eradicate malnutrition and hunger; (ii) increase access to finance for agriculture; (iii) develop value chains and the marketing of agricultural products with high added value and nutrition, through the establishment of agricultural investment zones; (iv) implement the necessary policy and institutional reforms to support agricultural transformation.
The project will benefit in the first place the Government of Madagascar, farmers, rural entrepreneurs and the Malagasy population.
