TOR for Contracting an Expert/(s) in The Field of Pricing and Risks Related to Agricultural Financing and Lending
This assignment is under Oxfam project “Developing Equitable Agricultural Production and Market Systems for Resilience Economic Development in the occupied Palestinian territory” funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA). The aim of the project is to contribute to resilient and equitable agricultural growth benefiting small-scale women and men producers in the oPt, while increasing their resilience and income through improved production and market systems in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.
During the inception phase of the SIDA project, an analysis has been done on how the Palestinian Authority can enable policies and market regulations that are more inclusive and encourage investments to better promote the interests of small-scale producers.
Investment in agricultural sector is the government's center of concerns in developed and developing countries. This is due to strategic issues, foremost of which is the food security issue which associated with national security. In addition, the agricultural sector is considered the sponge of poverty and unemployment because of its ability to absorb many manpower and to provide production inputs for other large productive sectors. Therefore, the Palestinian agricultural sector needs agricultural financing and lending opportunities to promote the agricultural development, raise the contribution to domestic income, reduce poverty and unemployment among farmers, and create job opportunities among graduates through agricultural production projects leading to food security and raise the contribution to agricultural exports. These opportunities are important especially that most of the current loans in the Palestinian market are consumer loans.
