Some $5.4 million has been set aside in the 2009/2010 budget, for monitoring and consultancy related to a Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) loan to the Jamaican Government, to fund a line of credit to the agricultural sector.
As outlined in the Estimates of Expenditure, the project, which is being financed by the CDB, underscores the Government’s efforts to make loan resources available to the Development Bank of Jamaica, for on-lending by approved financial institutions to small-scale farmers to increase agricultural production, productivity, and income.
Consultancy services are required to review arrangements for monitoring and evaluating this project, and make recommendations for the documentation of an appropriate monitoring and evaluation system. Within the objectives of the project, consultants will be required to assist in the implementation of the system.
The initiative is expected to commence in June 2009 and end a year later. Its physical targets include: provision of consultancy services to review arrangements for monitoring and evaluation; make recommendations for the documentation of and appropriate monitoring and evaluation system; and, assist in the implementation of the system.
