Launch of the Agroecology Financing Analysis Tool (AFAT) for the public sector in Africa - PSA Alliance
Increasingly, African countries are explicitly adopting agroecology in their national agricultural frameworks as a holistic approach to transforming their agricultural and food systems to improve food security, wealth creation, poverty reduction and to meet the commitments of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the African Union’s Agenda 2063 more effectively. This transformation, however, requires substantive investment (both in mindset changes and financial terms) and the redirecting of investment to promote agroecological approaches throughout the whole food system.

The PSA Alliance has developed an Agroecology Financing Analysis Tool (AFAT) to assist its members in their assessment of public financing for agriculture, with a focus on identifying the current levels of support, investment and commitment to agroecological transitions and climate resilient and gender-responsive agricultural practices that benefit smallholder farmers.

In particular, the tool helps analysts and activists answer the question: to what extent is current public financing for agriculture in Africa, from both overseas development assistance (ODA) and national budgets, supportive of a transition to agroecology?

Join us as we share this innovative tool and the results of its pilot covering agricultural investment in Malawi, Zimbabwe and at the SADC regional level.
