With Support of AFESD

What is NAPC?

The National Agricultural Policy Center (NAPC) is a research institution of the Syrian Ministry of Agriculture and Agrarian Reform (MAAR). It was established in 2000 and was supported by the FAO Project GCP/SYR/006/ITA, funded by the Italian Cooperation during the period 1998-2008.
The significant role of the NAPC and its professional outcomes has attracted the attention of several international institutions to express their willingness to assist and cooperate with the Center in carrying out its work plan. In particular, the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development (AFESD) offered its kind support to fund the NAPC 2009 -2010 Work Plan.

The NAPC specializes in applied economic analysis of agricultural policies. Research and communication are the two pillars of the Center, which has emerged as a forum for agricultural policy debate. The NAPC is a center of excellence in research, training, and advice on the subject of the sustainable development of Syrian agriculture. The NAPC also promotes the establishment of a permanent policy forum to enhance dialogue on agricultural issues among stakeholders and policy makers and to furnish these decision-makers with sound and appropriate policy recommendations.
