Policy Advice

Agriculture policy advice and reform projects are part of our major fields of work. These projects include legal framework, formulation and dissemination of agricultural strategies and support to private sector investments. We counsel on market interventions, EU accession and harmonization.

We are experienced in the different support concepts used by international donor organizations (e.g. sector approach, program-based approach, sector budget support) ensuring partner governments’ ownership of development policy, strategy and spending. Using these approaches, we create single comprehensive programmes and budget frameworks, and we coordinate donor engagement.

To support the establishment of a confident and active private sector, special interest groups are necessary to discuss economic requirements in each political context. We therefore actively support the creation of Public Private Dialogue (PPD) platforms, which aim at fostering a constructive exchange between the parties providing technical information, as well as generating ideas on how to further develop and improve the countries’ performance.

One example of a sound PPD approach is a Consultative Council composed of representatives from public and private institutions, which serves as formal platform for the open dialogue. Different business entities, via their representative association, can place suggestions for development measures to enhance the country’s development.
