FS2030 is now in an exciting phase of working with countries to help them progress on implementing important reforms. The Trust Fund recently awarded Bangladesh, Ghana, Malawi, Mozambique and Madagascar with implementation support grants totalling $75 million. The grants will finance the design and implementation of activities to repurpose public policy and expenditure programs and scale them up through World Bank operations.
In Bangladesh, current support in the form of fertilizer subsidies will be repurposed and delivered as direct support to farmers through a new e-voucher system, complemented by critical services. The program aims to scale up these changes to eventually repurpose the current Fertilizer Subsidy Program of over US$2 billion.
In Ghana, the existing agricultural public subsidy program will be reoriented towards a private sector-driven and digital platform-based inputs support delivery mechanism to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of public expenditure in the sector. The innovative biometric e-Agric system will be scaled up and bundled services will be provided through the digital platform.
