ReNAPRI Special Feature in OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook

ReNAPRI is collaborating with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations to provide a special “African Chapter” in the OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook.

The OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook, is a collaborative effort of the two institutions that brings together the commodity, policy and country expertise of both organizations and input from collaborating member countries to provide an annual assessment of prospects for the coming decade of national, regional and global agricultural commodity markets. The ReNAPRI chapter will take the East and Southern African story to the world and will incorporate established approaches to Outlook modelling as implemented by OECD-FAO to the ReNAPRI model.

The ReNAPRI Annual Agricultural Outlook is a collaborative effort of nine (9) National Agricultural Policy Research Institutes in East and Southern Africa. It seeks to provide relevant and timely national and regional policy support to national governments and Regional Economic Communities (RECs). The ReNAPRI Outlook is a tool for market and policy analysis with a specific focus on the maize and wheat sectors in East and Southern Africa. The 2015 ReNAPRI Outlook presents a baseline on maize, wheat, rice, and sugar production, consumption, prices and trade for select countries in ESA for the period 2015 to 2024. This outlook is based on assumptions regarding the expected trajectory of economic, technological, environmental, political, institutional, and demographic trends. The countries included in the analysis include; The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
