What is Enabling the Business of Agriculture?

Enabling the Business of Agriculture is a World Bank Group initiative that identifies and monitors regulations and policies that affect the livelihood of farmers. The project presents globally comparable data on regulations that are conducive to local, regional, and international business in agriculture. The initiative began in 2013 in response to a call from the G8 asking for the World Bank “to develop options for generating a Doing Business in Agriculture Index”. The project is supported by a number of donor organizations and partners, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Department for International Development (DFID) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
