The Learning Note "Country investment plans in agriculture: lessons from early experience" has been published by the FAO Investment Centre Division. It focuses on three case studies in Bangladesh, United Republic of Tanzania and Ethiopia and looks at the challenges, successes and lessons learned from preparing and developing country investment plans (CIPs), which were supported by FAO in 2010 and 2011. CIPs are intended to align, mobilize and direct resources to improve food security and agricultural development.

The study analyses the process in the case study countries and draws conclusions regarding management, collaboration and preparation of the CIPs as well as their quality and content. These findings can inform future CIP preparation processes and design, and guide external support by FAO and other partners.

UNDP & NPCA Technical Workshop on ‘Increasing Private Sector Investment through Augmented CAADP Investment Plan’ was convened by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) regional private sector project ‘African Facility for Inclusive Markets’ (AFIM) and the ‘Comprehensive African Agriculture Development Program’ (CAADP). The workshop was held in Johannesburg, South Africa 20-21 November 2012 at the Indaba Hotel.

The technical workshop was attended by over 30 participants from CAADP compact countries, the private sector, banking institutions, academic institutions etc. who discussed how to improve the utility of the National Agricultural Investment Plans (NAIPs) as tools to attract private sector investment to countries that have signed compacts under the AU NPCA CAADP program.

During the course of the workshop various experiences and ideas related to private sector engagement and investment attraction were shared by CAADP representatives and were discussed and debated by the workshop delegates. Experiences were shared from the Common Market of East and Sothern Africa (COMESA), Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, and Zimbabwe.

The outcome of the technical workshop was that the Private Sector Investor Guidelines which were developed in draft form were circulated by delegates to their respective stakeholders for comments, and a further more refined version was to be developed by UNDP AFIM. This document was also to feed in to a process being undertaken by CAADP to update the Post-Compact Guidelines overall.

Also it was decided at the meeting that 2-3 countries would be supported as a pilot project and effort to help them develop ‘Investor Briefs’ around their CAADP National Agricultural Investment Plan. The aim thus was that in the first quarter of 2013 or around the CAADP 2013 Partnership Platform, UNDP would look to convene an Investment Facilitation Platform as a demonstration exercise for two countries.

The next steps that were discussed for follow-up after the meeting were to identify two countries to work with (Zimbabwe, Botswana, Liberia were suggested) and to expand the discussion and promote the ‘Guidelines Annex’ at the 2013 CAADP Partnership Platform.

The purpose of the agricultural investment plan is to contribute to sustainable food and nutritional security, to increase the incomes of rural households, and to secure national economic growth.    The plan aims to transform agriculture into a modern, professionally‐managed and market‐oriented economic undertaking. This will be achieved through targeted investments that create an environment conducive to increased production; especially investing in the infrastructure required for agricultural intensification, promotion of professionalism, agricultural technological innovations and public – private sector partnerships. 

The Agriculture Sector Investment Plan lays out the investment requirements of the Ministry of Agriculture’s medium‐term strategic plan. The Investment Plan presented here is structured according to the Second Strategic Plan for the Transformation of Agriculture, the PSTA II. It outlines the vision and the overall program goals; it also shows the most important specific outputs under each sub‐program followed by a brief explanation on how some of the most important activities in the different sub‐ program are expected to affect poverty reduction, growth and agricultural development.
