The Agricultural Marketing Promotion and Regional Integration Project (AMPRIP) has been conceived out of the COMESA Common Agricultural Policy, which is the regional framework for agricultural development. The project will build capacity for member states to undertake safe and increased trade in agricultural and food items within and outside the region, with positive implications for regional integration, agricultural income generation and rural livelihoods. It will be implemented over a three–year period beginning June 2004 with total cost estimated at UA 6.164 million. Its implementation will also assist COMESA member states address some of their national and regional food security problems. The project’s key expected outputs include improved agriculture marketing information collection and dissemination, established and strengthened agricultural commodity exchanges, and enhanced sanitary and Phytosanitary measures (establish quarantine facilities and laboratories, set standards, and improve surveillance and regulation), and enhanced project management including M&E system.
