Supporting the Policy Environment for Economic Development

Agriculture, Food Security and Nutrition Law

In late 2013 the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture, Trade and Environment presented a draft law on Agriculture, Food Security and Nutrition for public debate. The draft law raised significant concerns among business and the donors community particularly in respect of its potential impact on the development of the private sector. Therefore the SPEED Program is supporting its partners, the Ministry of Agriculture and CTA to develop a legal review of the draft law and an economic analysis of the potential impacts were it promulgated. The results of this work are included below.
