Enabling the Business of Agriculture report 2017

21 March 2017

The World Bank has published its 2017 report ‘Enabling the Business of Agriculture’ (EBA).

The report argues that many countries already have strong and commercially oriented agriculture, but that more needs to be done to encourage agricultural commerce, such as lowering transaction costs, improving water permits for irrigation or better conditions for micro-financing.

EBA 2017 is the third report in the series, presenting data that measure legal barriers for businesses operating in agriculture in 62 countries and across 12 topic areas. It provides quantitative indicators on regulation for seed, fertiliser, machinery, finance, markets, transport, information and communication technology (ICT), and water.

Two overarching themes, gender and environmental sustainability, continue to be included in the report analysis to ensure that the messages developed by EBA encourage inclusive and sustainable practices. This year scoring was piloted for the land topic for 38 countries in which data were collected. The data for the remaining 24 countries will be collected next year and the team will refine the methodology further.
