Background

Cognizant of the potential benefits of Reimbursable Technical Assistance (RTA), IFAD Executive Board (EB) approved in September 2012 the use of RTAs as an additional instrument to cater to the needs of eligible member countries. Later on, RTA Operational Procedures were issued to provide the framework for RTA implementation at IFAD.

IFAD’s first RTA approved following the above-mentioned procedures is the ongoing RTA agreement signed with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) in February 2018. Highly anchored to the Saudi Arabia’s National Transformation Programme (NTP), the RTA project contributes to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda in the country by supporting the development of two value chains (coffee and mango) in the Jazan province.?

The project combines an area-based investment approach coupled with the provision of sector-wide policy advisory services. A RTA Project Office for project implementation is established in Jazan, with a team made up of international and local consultants (specialists with expertise ranging from agronomy to marketing and financial and procurement management).

Signed in 2018 for a three-year implementation period, current RTA is expected to be extended until September 2022.
