Organizational framework

Madagascar has agricultural potential to develop in order to remedy the problems of poverty and food insufficiency. The agriculture and livestock sectors play a major role in the country’s economy. It provides livelihoods to around 80% of the workforce and contributes between 25 and 30% to national GDP each year. The country has great potential for agricultural production. However, poverty and food and nutrition insecurity, which are reaching drastic levels in the country, are widespread in rural areas. Agriculture is one of the sectors most affected by the recurring shocks that affect the country, resulting in unpredictable production levels. Food production systems are still based on traditional approaches,mainly dependent on climatic conditions, in particular precipitation, production being mainly oriented towards food crops intended for household consumption. In addition, the strategy for the development of agricultural value chains sensitive to nutrition, developed with the technical support of FAO ( April 2022 ), specifies that malnutrition still remains a national scourge for Madagascar, including for the population living in the urban areas of Antananarivo. It is mainly due to the prevalence of poverty, low access to nutritious food, the status of women without autonomy, the prevalence of food insecurity, lack of access to drinking water, sanitation and medical care. production is mainly oriented towards food crops intended for household consumption.
