2 Monitoring and Evaluation Agenda Setting Decision Making Policy Implementation Policy Formulation THE POLICY ACTORS Civil Society Donors Cabinet Parliament Ministries Private Sector

3 Prime movers Technology Both small and large scale farmers Both embodied and disembodied Improved human capital at all levels Sustained growth in both physical and biological infrastructure Effective institutes and institutions Enabling political and economic environment and policies

4 No prime mover on its own can get agriculture to grow on a sustainable basis Long-term investment is needed to strengthen prime movers Prime movers need to work in tandem to achieve sustainable development Important characteristics of prime movers

5 Getting agriculture moving in Eastern and Southern Africa and a Framework for Action –Prepared by M. Rukuni in consultation with: C. Ackello-Ogutu H. Amani P. Anandajayasekeram W. Mwangi H. Sigwele T. Takavarasha Commissioned by World Bank on behalf of Global Coalition of Africa February 26-27, 1994, Harare Genesis of the FANRPAN SEED

6 Only intensified investments in prime movers can lead to agricultural transformation Single most constraint to getting agriculture moving is the general lack of comprehensive agricultural policies Poor sectoral and macro-economic policies have contributed to the stagnation of agriculture Inadequate capacity of most national and regional institutes to address agricultural policy issues Key Conclusions

7 Need to integrate agricultural policy with industrial policy and to develop agro-industries to attain more value addition Trade, marketing and pricing policies to be clear and supportive of farmers Need for harmonisation of policies Key Conclusions (cont.)

8 Create a new Regional Agricultural Policy Analysis and Research Institute The institute will: –in collaboration with regional universities, be responsible for research and analysis leading to the co-ordination of agricultural policies and strategies in ESA –create an operational agricultural commodity research / information system that should promote intra-regional trade as well as build ESA into a strong trade block Recommendations

9 ESA Ministers of Agriculture’ Call Official Gazette of COMESA, Volume 1, No 1, 9 December 1994 “The Annual Conference of Ministers of Agriculture for Eastern and Southern Africa as constituted in a meeting on 14-15 April 1994 in Harare, Zimbabwe should be the policy organ for food security in the COMESA region” Create a regional agricultural policy analysis network to enhance indigenous capacity for policy formulation and analysis as ESA countries develop comprehensive agricultural policies and food security strategies The network, in collaboration with regional universities, to be responsible for research and analysis leading to the coordination of agricultural policies and strategies in ESA

10 Each ESA country shall, with immediate effect, start developing such comprehensive and implementable agricultural policies which indicate national priorities within each prime mover This network will assist the convening of the Conference of Ministers to review the progress of the implementation of agricultural sector policies and strategies Recommendations of the Ministerial Conference cont. (14 – 15 April 1994, Harare, Zimbabwe)

11 Policies –Lack of comprehensive agricultural policy –Inappropriate policies –Inconsistency (Sectoral; Sectoral and macro-economic; Sectoral growth objectives and macro-economic, fiscal and trade policies) –Nature of reforms are rather uniform Process –Often prescriptive / adhoc –Over-reliance on foreign experts –Disconnect between policy analysis and policy formulation –Policy decisions made with inadequate information and/or analysis Capacity –Lack of / inadequate analytical capacity at national and regional level Key Issues
