Local news, 20.11.2017

Today a new direction for coordinated support to agribusiness in Palestine was unveiled at the launch of the Multi-donor Agribusiness Programme “Reform and Development of Markets, Value Chains and Producers’ Organizations” (MAP) in Ramallah. Denmark, the Netherlands, EU, Switzerland and Spain are joining forces with the Ministry of Agriculture and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to support this four-year, USD 30 million programme to accelerate the market-based development of Palestinian agribusiness.

The programme intervenes at all stages of the agricultural value chains to foster private sector led development, competitiveness and profitability. MAP will support investments defined and implemented by agribusinesses, with a special focus placed on women led agribusinesses, the Gaza Strip and investment proposals by small-scale family farmers and youth.

Together, Denmark, the Netherlands, EU, Switzerland and Spain are fully embracing the principles of alignment and harmonization for enhanced aid effectiveness
