Advancing Agricultural Finance Policy Coordination in Africa
By Erick Sile, Agricultural Finance Senior Advisor, GIZ/MFW4A

Agricultural finance has been deemed a "policy orphan" in Africa. The lack of coordination among stakeholders further deters the process of establishing common guidelines that are necessary to pull the required public and private resources towards the achievement of a common goal: providing adequate and affordable financial services to the agricultural sector.

In this article, the author examines the state of agricultural finance policy coordination in Africa, drawing on a recent study commissioned by MFW4A, in collaboration with GIZ.
