Description

The change in scope and increase in TA amount would support the technical assistance on cross-border agricultural trade and investment. The additional grant resource offered by International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) will allow the TA to undertake special studies in order to: (i) provide an interim strategy on policies, technologies, institutions, markets,social and environmental issues in the biofuel subsector of the GMS; and (ii) develop a medium term strategy and targeted interventions for a follow-up phase to be implemented by the GMS Working Group in Agriculture (WGA) and other relevant agencies, for integrating biofuel and rural renewable energy production and rural agriculture for poverty reduction.
