About Enabling the Business of Agriculture

Agriculture and global food systems play a central role in meeting the World Bank Group’s twin goals of eliminating extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity. Ending poverty will not be possible without raising the incomes of the rural poor and ending global hunger. What’s more, one-third of the world’s workforce is engaged in the agricultural sector and two-thirds of the global poor work in agriculture. 

In order for agriculture to become a driver of growth and a tool to alleviate poverty, the investments and performance of key players across agricultural value chains—from farmers to large and small agricultural businesses—are vital. Since 2013, Enabling the Business of Agriculture (EBA) has collected data on laws and regulations that impact the enabling business environment for agriculture. By providing key data on regulatory frameworks that are globally comparable and actionable, EBA strengthens the information base that can be used for policy dialogue and reform.
