The Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development (MoAIWD) in collaboration with Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism (MoITT) is implementing a US$95m Agricultural Commercialization (AGCOM) Project with financial loan from the World Bank. The project will be implemented country-wide for six years (2018 to 2023)
AGCOM is being implemented through an independent Project Implementation Unit (PIU) whose operations started in July 2018. The PIU is charged with the responsibility to oversee day to day project implementation, monitor progress, and coordinate and account for utilisation of project funds.
1.2 Project Development Objective (PDO)
The PDO is to increase commercialization of agriculture value chain products selected under the project. Agricultural value chain products are products of farms and agribusinesses, including crop, livestock, and fisheries products sold domestically or exported, with or without processing, depending on market requirements.
1.3 Project Development Objective (PDO)‐level Results Indicators
The following indicators will measure progress toward the PDO
- Increase in yield of selected commodities by POs & PAs participating in the project
- Selected agricultural value chain products linked to markets (PO that meet market specifications defined by off‐takers)
- Increased value of gross sales by producer groups for products of agricultural value chains supported by the project
