DURATION

This 5-year, €7 million information programme provides enhanced data and knowledge to developing and emerging countries, covering EU policies, regulatory and non-regulatory measures, standards and market trends that have a potential impact on the competitiveness, market access and trade dynamics of agricultural value chains linked to the EU market.

AGRINFO is funded by the European Union and implemented by COLEACP.

AGRINFO will:

  • Identify and monitor EU policies, regulatory and non-regulatory measures, standards and market trends in agriculture and agrifood that have a potential impact on competitiveness, market access and trade dynamics in partner countries
  • Generate and disseminate accessible, regularly updated digital information on conditions and requirements – environmental, social and economic – for EU market access and competitiveness
  • Capture evidence of the evolving impacts of these conditions and requirements on agricultural value chains in developing and emerging economies
  • Contribute to information sharing and engagement among stakeholders to ensure better understanding of the potential implications and opportunities of new policy and legislation, and to inform policymaking and standard-setting processes
  • Offer targeted information on demand, to inform the design of strategies and actions to minimise or mitigate negative impacts, and to leverage opportunities

Who will benefit?

Direct partner beneficiaries:

  • Competent Authorities at national/regional level in partner countries, including relevant sector line ministries as well as official controls, and national SPS Committees
  • Business membership organisations (BMOs) and national farmer organisations in partner countries and the EU

Indirect partner beneficiaries, in partner countries and the EU: local and international consumers; rural communities; private sector operators (including MSMEs and small-scale growers) in agricultural value chains from production to retail; national/regional technical working groups; public-private stakeholder platforms; certification and standard-setting bodies.
