Public Sector Support for Inclusive Agribusiness Development - An appraisal of institutional models in Nepal
PDF File Size: 960 KB | Download   
This study describes the organizational mode for agribusiness development applied by the Government of Nepal, and the services provided by different public agencies with responsibilities for agribusiness promotion. The organizational setting for meeting this mandates is a complex system of three layers: an agribusiness unit and field-level implementer in the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperative (MOAC) and two interministerial committees in charge of coordinating agribusiness matters. The agribusiness is the Agribusiness Promotion Section (APS), which was established in 2000 as an apex body within the MOAC formulate policies and coordinate program for agribusiness and high value crop promotion. In 2002 APS was merged with another unit responsible for agricultural statistics in Agribusiness Promotion and Statistics Promotion (APSD), thus weakening its agribusiness mandate to some extent. In spite of its satisfactory original design, APS encounters many difficulties in fulfilling overarching coordinating role in agribusiness matter because of a chronic dearth of financial and human resources. Its lack of a network decentralized office at district level further reduces its effectiveness in field-level implementation. Although APS was conceived as the ultimate agency responsible for agribusiness development, these weakness have forced it to concentrate almost exclusively on policy-making and knowledge sharing functions.
