1 WORKING DRAFT Last Modified 3/4/2013 3:08 PM E. Africa Standard Time Printed 2/26/2013 6:22 PM E. Africa Standard Time Republic of South Sudan The National Effort for Agricultural Transformation (NEAT) DRAFT Investment Plans— For Development Partners’ Feedback Juba, South Sudan March 1, 2013

2 Republic of South Sudan | The National Effort for Agricultural Transformation (NEAT) will drive South Sudan towards its 2040 Agricultural Vision  NEAT has two integrated components: the Zonal Effort for Agricultural Transformation (ZEAT) and the Comprehensive Agricultural Master Plan (CAMP) 1)ZEAT is a highly prioritized zonal approach ready for rapid implementation by the rainy seasons of 2013 and )IN PROGRESS: CAMP is a complete strategy covering agriculture and related sectors for all states and communities, to guide the country to full national and household food security; implementation should begin by 2015 The National Effort for Agricultural Transformation (NEAT) will achieve this vision  Improved production so the country is food secure and self-sufficient in the region  Improved health and nutrition across the country  Agriculture as an alternative economic engine complementing oil and gas  Increased incomes for >80% of the population South Sudan has a vision for a transformed agricultural sector

3 Republic of South Sudan | 2 Achieving this vision requires a comprehensive and coordinated response from all stakeholders MAF, State governments, Private sector entrepreneurs, donors, implementing partners, and farmers will follow Paris declaration principles: NEAT is an RSS-led effort with clear roles for all stakeholders: Ultimately we will achieve the new vision of agriculture in South Sudan Ownership: Partner countries exercise effective leadership over development strategies and co- ordinate actions Alignment: Donors base overall support on partner countries' national strategies, institutions and procedures Harmonization: Donors' actions are more harmonized, transparent and collectively effective Managing for Results: Managing resources and improving decision-making for results Mutual Accountability: Donors and partners are accountable for development results 1 Mobilize the private sector to unleash agriculture as the core driver of future growth and stability 2 Employ market-based solutions to activate public and private investments 3 Empower farmers and entrepreneurs to reach their full potential 4 Integrate interventions to achieve momentum and scale Collaborate with diverse stakeholders to build on strengths and distribute risk 5 Fundamental Operating Principles:

4 Republic of South Sudan | 3 There are four types of agricultural programs that are part of this vision Direct support to ZEAT activities Programs supporting cross-cutting enabling activities Support to ZEAT implementation unit Additional agricultural programming (outside ZEAT) Investments targeted at high potential market-ready farmers to increase national food production and make it accessible through aggregation and marketing Investments that promote a strong enabling environment for agriculture via research, trade, land, and private sector development programs and policies Investments that promote the recruiting, staffing, training, and ongoing administrative needs of the NEAT implementation organization Programs that support households to grow enough food and meet basic needs throughout the country All four types of programs are essential for agricultural development A shared vision for each type of program will help align all stakeholders

5 Republic of South Sudan | 4 Preparing a shared investment framework for the NEAT ▪ This plan will serve as a framework to align all stakeholders around a common approach towards agricultural investments in South Sudan, including zonal transformations and coordinating investments ▪ This framework allows stakeholders to share information about their ongoing programs and proposed new investments in four sections:  Direct support to ZEAT activities  Programs supporting cross-cutting enablers  Support to the NEAT Implementation Unit  Additional aligned activities (outside of ZEAT) ▪ An Excel file with detailed instructions will be distributed for all Development Partners to easily list programs. Then the NEAT technical working team will compile all programs in this plan ▪ The compiled program summary from these worksheets will be shared across all stakeholders to provide a common information base and allow the Ministry of Agriculture to balance resources against programs ▪ In order to ensure a quick path to implementation, please return the completed investment plan worksheets to the NEAT team by 6 March Documenting all programs in South Sudan

6 Republic of South Sudan | 5 Guiding principles to help complete investment matrices PRINCIPLE State ministries must contribute resources to activities, not just depend on donor commitments State Ministry of Agriculture trains high- performing extension agents and deploys them to priority counties EXAMPLE Investment commitments should take advantage of the unique strengths of the implementer Implementer A specializes in warehouse management, while Implementer B utilizes teams already on-the-ground in some counties Donor/Development Partner commitments should be for multiple years to build local knowledge Development Partner A funds the training of 30 entrepreneurs in year 1, and builds on successes to scale to 100 by year 3 Donors/Development Partners should ideally commit to most of the activities for a geography to reduce handoffs A single donor should support farmers in production and marketing rather than dividing and risking a failure to link

8 Republic of South Sudan | 7 The ZEAT planning process is being rolled out across the country in 2013; state workshops are being conducted to develop strategies in 3 phases 3 Phase 3: ▪ Eastern Flood Plains - South ▪ Nile Sobat 1 Phase 1 (ongoing): ▪ Greenbelt ▪ Hills and Mountains ▪ Eastern Flood Plains - North Phase 2: ▪ Western Flood Plains ▪ Ironstone Plateau ▪ Arid  To date, the ZEAT team has completed the Greenbelt investment plan  Over the next 12 months, MAF intends to develop complete plans for all remaining zones led by state ministries in partnership with other line ministries and development partners  For now, please review the Greenbelt plans and identify areas where you can support immediate investment needs  For all other zones, please catalog your support in the “other plans” section  When ZEAT planning is complete in other zones, we will work together to realign programs to overall strategy following a similar process as completed in the Greenbelt

9 Republic of South Sudan | 8 Greenbelt Transformation will aggregate smallholder maize and connect to markets Develop community block farms in Eastern Equatoria Foster agro-entrepreneurs in Central Equatoria Build large associations in Western Equatoria ▪ Organize smallholders onto 90 cleared farms ▪ Subsidize land clearance, inputs, and plowing ▪ Provide intensive production training ▪ Rehabilitate roads and develop marketing system ▪ Develop 100 agro- entrepreneurs providing storage, mechanization, improved seeds, and value addition ▪ Provide intensive technical and business training ▪ Rehabilitate roads to Juba market ▪ Develop 4 existing and 4 new large farmer associations ▪ Link association output to large traders ▪ Develop market information system and rehabilitate trunk and feeder roads The integrated Greenbelt transformation will tailor interventions to local contexts

10 Republic of South Sudan | 9 In Western Equatoria, prioritize supporting cooperative associations and commercial farmers to buy and sell at scale ▪ Support 3 existing associations and develop 4 new associations – Build on existing successes (e.g., YAFA in Yambio with 2500 members) – Construct or rehabilitate warehouses and ensure proper fumigation – Link associations to large traders and develop processing opportunities – Provide quality extension and input subsidies Our interventions will be: Engage 15,000 farmers over 3 years Our projected results and costs: Critical requirements for success:  Funding for roads mobilized quickly so increased production does not spoil  Farmer associations are sustainable and private- sector oriented—not dependent on relief ▪ Support 15,000 farmers over 3 years with 40 M SSP of public funds and 45 M SSP of farmer/ association funding: – Average cultivated land from 2.5 to 3.5 feddans – Yield from 1 to 2 MT/feddan – Post-harvest loss reduces from 40% to 15% ▪ Rehabilitate 1,260 km of road at SSP 605 M cost ▪ Agriculture cost: SSP 88 M ▪ Infrastructure cost: SSP 605 M ▪ Total cost: SSP 693 M ▪ Boost commercial farmers to expand land or develop outgrowers through loans and input subsidies ▪ Rehabilitate trunk roads to Juba and Wau and area feeder roads WESTERN EQUATORIA

11 Republic of South Sudan | 10 What will it take? Identify leaders of small farmer groups to form the foundation of each cooperative, through intensive recruitment and training Provide training to create a small, professional management group for each cooperative to represents the interests of its members Facilitate access to finance for each association to ensure sustained success beyond government/development partner support What will be created? Co-operative associations that are profit-oriented businesses that independently organize and support farmers Connect associations to institutional buyers and private traders to purchase harvest WESTERN EQUATORIA Key success factors for strong, independent associations in Western Equatoria

35 Republic of South Sudan | 34 The success of the transformation will depend on a creating a dedicated implementation unit … Implementation units help overcome many of these challenges National transformations are deeply complex … Size and complexity of the challenge: NEAT encompasses 7 different zonal strategies across 10 states Follow a single, coordinated action and investment plan Number of stakeholders: Transforming agriculture requires multi-sector cooperation as well as support from many development partners and the private sector Bring together a team of high performing leadership Speed required: RSS has established a very near-term food self-sufficiency goal Minimize bureaucracy with a fast-acting unit Large financial commitments: Public sector and donor funding requirements are large and interdependent Develop joint donor/ government monitoring to track progress
