Project Objectives

The primary objectives of the programme are to achieve sustainable growth and to reduce poverty and food insecurity. To achieve these objectives, the programme will continue and expand ongoing reforms to maintain appropriate macroeconomic policies as well as agricultural policy reforms to ensure adequate producer incentives and efficient marketing services for smallholders. The programme also aims at improving ADMARC's capability to carry out the functions of a price stabilization agency. To this end further measures will be initiated to (a) improve efficiency in agricultural public expenditures by reviewing and restructuring them to ensure consistency with sector priorities and cost-effectiveness; (b) implement pilot schemes to develop ways of targeting fertilizer subsides and credit to the poor; and (c) strengthen the Government's capacity to monitor and redress the impact of the adjustment programme on the poor.
