This EvD Special Study evaluates the relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of the 2010 Agribusiness Sector Strategy and its implementation from 2011 to 2013. Progress was made in priority areas including food security, regional differentiation, sustainability and policy dialogue. Several findings and recommendations are made to improve the future agribusiness sector strategy and implementation.

This study evaluates the relevance, efficiency and effectiveness of the EBRD's 2010 Agribusiness Sector Strategy as implemented from 2011 to 2013. The 2010 Strategy was shaped by both global considerations and Bank-specific priorities. Global food security – the main theme – provided a wider context for strengthening food supply/security in the Bank's region; while Bank-wide initiatives (such as early transition countries and sustainable energy) were incorporated to overlay the main theme.
