AGP2 Capacity Development Support Facility

The Capacity Development Support Facility (CDSF) is a 5-year initiative funded through a bilateral agreement between the Government of Ethiopia (GoE) and Global Affairs Canada (GAC). CDSF supports the second phase of the Government’s Agricultural Growth Program (AGP2). The AGP2 development objective is to increase agricultural productivity and commercialization of smallholder farmers. It also aims at contributing to dietary diversity and consumption, poverty reduction, and climate change adaptation. These development objectives are clearly in line with the second phase of the national Growth Transformation Plan.

Capacity to implement AGP2 and manage activities efficiently and effectively is of paramount importance to the Government of Ethiopia and its development partners. CDSF provides support to enhance implementation of AGP2 to improve the quality of capacity development interventions, and strengthen the institutional capacity of government ministries, directorates, regional agricultural bureaus, zonal and woreda offices, and implementing agencies. CDSF addresses capacity development gaps within AGP2 structures, systems and processes.
