Malawi Agriculture Sector Performance Report: July 2016 - June 2017
Agriculture Joint Sector Review (JSR) Assessment Report
The 2016/17 Agriculture Sector Performance Report (ASPR) documents the performance of the agricultural sector of Malawi for the fiscal year 2016/17 against the set goal, objectives and outcomes measures of the National Agriculture Policy (NAP) and the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) framework of the National Agriculture Investment Plan (NAIP). As such, this report contains the baseline measures for monitoring progress towards achieving the agricultural transformation agenda outlined in the NAP and operationalized through the investment
framework of the NAIP. Given that the NAIP is part and parcel of the CAADP processes towards achieving the country targets, as specified in the Malabo Declaration (2014) and the agriculture-related goals under the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) of the United Nations, the ASPR is also a mutual accountability tool that presents the performance of Malawi towards achieving these regional and global commitments. As such, the ASPR reports on agriculture sector performance indicators that are submitted to the African Union as part of the Malabo Biennial Reporting process and those that are submitted at the global level in reporting on progress towards the SGDs. These agriculture-related performance indicators are aligned to the M&E framework of the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy III, which is the medium-term development strategy of Malawi, and the Vision 2020, which is Malawi’s long-term development strategy. In addition, the ASPR presents progress on performance indicators that are reported on under the G7 New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, as outlined in the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition Country Cooperation Framework, which the Government of Malawi signed onto in 2013.
