Agricultural Transformation Agenda in GTP II

  1. 1. Agricultural Transformation Agenda in GTP II Dereje Biruk (ATA) Ethiopia - CGIAR Research Programs (CRPs) Country Collaboration and Site Integration Meeting, Addis Ababa, 11 December 2015
  2. 2. 2 • Overview of the Agricultural Transformation Agenda • Key Pillars and programs • Transformation Deliverables for selected Program Areas Contents
  3. 3. q 3 Achieving agricultural transformation requires unlocking systemic bottlenecks which in turn requires dedicated action: This requires: • a dedicated focus on transformational issues; • coordinating interventions within and beyond the agricultural sector; • developing real-time solutions for implementation problems as they arise; and, • an enhanced monitoring and reporting system The Transformation Agenda is a mechanism developed to prioritize a set of interventions that aim to catalyze the transformation of Ethiopia's agriculture sector.
  4. 4. 4 Developing the Agricultural Transformation Agenda The Agricultural Transformation Agenda is developed around interventions (deliverables) to unlock systemic bottlenecks identified through: • Development of sub-sector strategies via extensive consultation with different stakeholders and leveraging in-country and international best practices. • Identification of transformational interventions that address the systemic bottlenecks prioritized in the strategy development process of key agricultural sub-sectors • The aggregation of prioritized deliverables across the agriculture sector constitute the Agricultural Transformation Agenda.
  5. 5. 5 Implementation & monitoring Multiple stakeholders implement the Agricultural Transformation Agenda: • Implementation is coordinated by MoANR, supported by the ATA and overseen by the Transformation Council, • various deliverables of the Agricultural Transformation Agenda are implemented by diverse stakeholders. • . ATA is responsible for monitoring and reporting progress to the Transformation Council • For each deliverable, annual targets and quarterly milestones are established, which form the basis for monitoring.
  6. 6. 6 Key Pillars, Programs and Deliverables
  7. 7. 7 • Increased and market oriented crop production and productivity; • Increased livestock production and productivity; • Reduced degradation and improved productivity of natural resources; and • Enhanced food security. The four agriculture sector objectives highlighted in the GTP II provided the starting point for the pillars of the Agricultural Transformation Agenda in GTP II: • Markets and Agri-business • Enhancing implementation Capacity From learning in GTP I
  8. 8. • Agriculture will continue to be the main source of growth • Smallholder agriculture (pastoralist) will continue to be the main source of growth • The role of the private sector will be enhanced • Scaling up of best practices • Increased Irrigation • Increase HH income • Development zone based Agr development • Benefit Youth and Women • Improved input output market system • Improve resilience capacity of Arid and Semi-Arid areas • CRGE strategy mainstreaming Strategic Directions:
  9. 9. What does the Agricultural Transformation Agenda seeks to achieve? Increased Crop and Livestock Production and Productivity 1. Accelerated adoption of productivity enhancing technologies by smallholder farmers 2. Enhanced efficiency of input use Commercial orientation of smallholder agriculture and market development 3. Increased investment in agricultural value addition by various types of actors 4. Improved competitiveness of selected agricultural commodities within domestic and global value chains Environmentally sustainable and inclusive agricultural growth 5. Improved enabling environment for smallholder farmers to invest in enhanced natural resource management and climate smart agriculture 6. Enhanced capacity across multiple dimensions to address specific concerns of rural households with particular constraints (women, youth, food insecure, and pastoralists) Enhanced Implementation Capacity 7. Efficient institutional arrangements and capacity in place with enhanced capacity to implement and monitor GTP2 activities and targets Anchor Deliverable: Agricultural Commercialization Clusters 8. Tight integration of transformational deliverables in select geographies to accelerate the transition of smallholder farmers from subsistence to commercial orientation while ensuring environmental sustainability and inclusiveness” Overall, the Agricultural Transformation Agenda seeks to achieve 8 results that contribute directly to GTP2
  10. 10. 10 The process: •A ministerial level working group assigned by the PM to develop the high level vision for Agriculture and Rural Transformation in GTP II, •The ATA and MoANR engaged federal and regional stakeholders to identify the broad pillars for agricultural transformation in the next five years.

  32. 32. Summary of ATA support The role of the Agricultural Transformation Agency (ATA) 32 GTP2 Agricultural Interventions Defining and monitoring the Agricultural Transformation Agenda Piloting 1 3 • In a narrow set of prioritized interventions, the ATA works with a partner in the sector to pilot a solution and hand over a successful pilot to partners for scale-up • In an even narrower set of prioritized interventions where there is time urgency and lack of capacity in the system, ATA takes joint responsibility to execute an intervention at scale while building the capacity of the long term owner in the system for hand over Implementation support 2 4 • ATA provides owners of prioritized interventions in the Agricultural Transformation Agenda with support in four key areas: (a) Strategy development, (b) Detailed problem solving, (c) Capacity building and (d) Coordination support • ATA has worked with various stakeholders to identify a set of targeted and high impact interventions (deliverables) that constitute the agricultural transformation agenda. • ATA assists deliverable owners to provide accurate reporting on developments related to the Agricultural Transformation Agenda; • ATA provides quarterly reporting on the Agricultural Transformation Agenda to the Agricultural Transformation Council ATA would provide two types of high level implementation support ATA would be responsible for jointly implementing some specific systemic interventions in two key ways A B Overview of the Agricultural Transformation Agenda End-to-end solutions
