The NAP 2013 aims at addressing challenges that continue to hinder the development of the agricultural sector; these include low productivity; over dependence on rain-fed agriculture; inadequate agriculture support services; poor infrastructure; weak agro-industries; low quality of agricultural produce; inadequate participation of the country’s private sector in agriculture; environmental degradation and crop pests and diseases. A more conducive policy environment than the current one is required for effective participation of all actors in the sector in order to tap existing capabilities and potentialities so as to revitalise the development of the sector. There shall, therefore, be a policy shift towards increased investment in agriculture and greater involvement of the private sector in the production and provision of support services to the farming community.
