Summary 3ADI+ Suriname will work with value chain actors to identify systemic problems and provide advice on investments and policies to foster an enabling environment for agribusiness and agro-industry.
Background The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) are jointly launching the Accelerated Agriculture and Agro-industry Development Initiative Plus (3ADI+).

3ADI+ is an integrated development programme which brings together technical assistance, public finance and private investment through coordination and linkages to develop inclusive and sustainable value chains and market systems. It is based on four pillars related to knowledge, coordination, funding and policy.

The wider aim of 3ADI+ is to develop innovative and sustainable value chain and market system development. Programmes will be rolled out in three pilot countries and 3ADI+ institutions and funding mechanisms for agricultural and agro-industrial development and investment will be set up.
Objective Suriname is invited as one of three pilot countries, alongside Bangladesh and Tanzania for the inception phase.The initial work in Surinam will focus on a thorough value chain analysis for a selected commodity for a period of some 3-6 full months. This will give recommendations for further action.

Specifically, the 3ADI+ support would bring additional high-quality resources to assist in the early analytical stages of the Suriname Agriculture Market Access Project (SAMAP). The International Trade Centre (ITC) was identified as an important partner with good knowledge of the Caribbean context. 3ADI+ diagnostics bring the combined technical expertise of FAO, UNIDO, ITC, the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the German Organisation for Technical Cooperation (GIZ). Additionally, the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) is likely to play a key role in de-risking investment linked to 3ADI+ technical assistance in light of their recent partnership with FAO.

3ADI+ will work with value chain actors to identify systemic problems within businesses and in the enabling environment to provide guidance on public and private investment and policies to foster an enabling environment for agribusiness and agro-industry.

FAO, UNIDO, and ITC want to initiate a dialogue on a) identification of focal points in LVV and HIT, b) value chain selection and c) timing to support SAMAP in 2018.

Both 3ADI+ and SAMAP will collaborate and operate within the wider framework of national Food & Nutrition Security (FNS) agenda in terms of the overall policy framework and multi-stakeholder institutional mechanism. The activity will focus on the pineapple value chain.
