Colombia country engagement : agriculture analytics and advisory services (English)

The Second Rural Productive Partnerships Support Project (Programa de Apoyo a las Alianzas Productivas II - PAAP II) closed in June 2015, leaving the World Bank Group without an active IBRD-funded lending operation in the agricultural sector in Colombia for the first time in more than two decades. With agricultural and rural development having been identified as a priority both in the government’s national development strategy as well as in the World Bank Group’s Country Partnership Framework 2016-21, there is interest from both parties in continuing collaboration in the sector. The purpose of the activity is to: (1) support the ongoing dialogue with the National Planning Department (Departamento de Planeación Nacional - DNP), the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (Ministerio de Agricultura y Desarrollo Rural – MADR) and other key actors responsible for agriculture and rural development; (2) allow the World Bank Group to make available knowledge, data, and tools that can be used by the Government to inform the design and implementation of its new agricultural and rural development strategy; and (3) explore areas for potential future collaboration. The development objective is to explore with the Colombian Government opportunities for the World Bank Group to provide analytical services, technical assistance, and/or financing in support of the Government's agriculture and rural development policies and strategies.
