GAFSP Agriculture Growth Interactive Map of Ethiopia

Short Name: 

The Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP) is a multilateral mechanism designed to assist in the implementation of pledges made by the G20 in Pittsburgh in September 2009. The objective is to address the underfunding of country and regional agriculture and food security strategic investment plans already being developed by countries in consultation with donors and other stakeholders at the country level. GAFSP co-finances the Agriculture Growth Program (AGP), which aims to increase agricultural productivity and market access for key crop and livestock products in targeted woredas (districts) with increased participation of women and youth.

This interactive map of Ethiopia identifies the woredas where the AGP is active. The map is broken down into 11 regions, 81 zones, and 550 woredas. It allows users to overlay AGP project locations (at the woreda level) with demographic information and agriculture-related data such as different farming systems, long-term average annual rainfall, average length of growing period in days, total cropland area (including irrigated), maize area harvested, and average travel time to the nearest town.

AGP operates in the two regions that have the largest percentage of population in the poorest quintile of consumption: Amhara (19.4%) and Tigray (16.3%), as well as in districts with high potential for growth.

Once baseline data collection is completed, additional layers will be uploaded, including GAFSP disbursement amounts at the lowest possible sub-national level. The map was created by the World Bank Institute Innovation Team, with input from the government project team.
