West Africa - Second Phase of the Support Program for the West Africa Agricultural Productivity Program (Inglês)

Ratings of Second Phase of the Support Program for the West Africa Agricultural Productivity Program (WAAPP) for West Africa were as follows: outcome was satisfactory, Bank performance was moderately satisfactory, and monitoring and evaluation quality was substantial. Some of the lessons learned include: (i) the regional approach with an adaptable program lending instrument was the key to WAAPP’s success in general and for WAAPP‐2A in particular; (ii) without the coordinated regional research effort and the creation of RCoS there would have been little first‐class research, little research cooperation among the countries, and no synergies with relevant Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) or other international research centers;(iii) technologies should only be developed through the national and regional research centers if no solutions to a given problem already exists in other parts of the world; (iv) repeated funding of certain successful technologies should be the norm and all constraints for such technologies along the value chain should be tackled; (v) research into agricultural mechanization needs a paradigm shift; (vi) the e‐voucher system that seeks to rationalize the distribution of subsidized inputs to make it more transparent and to allow to target specific farmers, namely the poor is a good policy; and (vii) the Bill foresees the creation of a Tree Crops Development Authority and would initially involve oil palm, rubber, cashew and shea.
