SPEED+’s framework for agriculture policy reform is based on Feed the Future (FTF) priorities and guidance, and targets high-impact reforms. SPEED+ staff will work with counterparts to identify sound, non-distorting policy reforms and regulations which are needed to mobilize private investment, create jobs, and enhance the competitiveness of Mozambique’s agribusiness and agri-trade. As necessary, SPEED+ will identify current or proposed policies that negatively (or would negatively) affect the agribusiness environment and raise these concerns in appropriate forum for discussion and resolution. SPEED+ will facilitate improvements in the enabling environment that promote competitiveness of the agribusiness sector, while managing and mitigating the negative impacts. Existing analyses conducted by previous USAID-funded or other programs as well as analyses provided by governmental counterparts will provide a basis for this work. SPEED+ will support the analytical effort of Government of the Republic of Mozambique (GRM) counterparts to develop and pursue policy reform with the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security (MASA) and the Ministry of Land, Environment, and Rural Development (MITADER), the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MIC) as well as other relevant ministries to promote a policy environment conducive for sustainable agriculture value chain development. SPEED+ will also identify and work with partners to eliminate barriers that make it harder for women to engage as traders and business entrepreneurs. Specific activities for Year Two are presented below.
SPEED+ will assist the GRM to establish business, trade, and investment policies which promote private sector-led broad-based economic growth. As requested by government counterparts, we will help to coordinate reforms across GRM ministries and strong private sector advocates in order to provide essential feedback loops on how citizens and companies are affected by proposed laws and regulations. This coordination will include efforts to improve the quality of problem identification and analysis of alternative policy options through broad stakeholder input. Similarly, we will work with counterparts, such as CTA and other business associations to build public and private capacity to implement and monitor the implementation of reforms. Activities under Component 2 are divided into Trade and Investment Policy activities and Business Enabling Environment activities.
