Benchmarking the Business of Agriculture


Project OVERVIEW

  • Benchmarking the Business of Agriculture, a new World Bank Group initiative, is designed to help policy makers strengthen agribusiness globally, enabling the farm sector to participate more fully in the market. The project will identify and monitor policies and regulations that limit market access for small to medium-size producers.

    The project’s long-term goal is to provide solid data and analyses to inform policies that support inclusive participation in agricultural value chains and foster an enabling environment for the local and regional business of agriculture.
