Agriculture is the backbone of the Sudanese economy, generating one-third of GDP and having a labor share of more than 50 percent. Agriculture provides livelihood to approximately two-thirds of the population. Value chains in the agriculture sector, however, remain underdeveloped and fragmented and lack integration. Increased agro-processing and trade, supported by well-directed strategic public sector investments, can unlock much greater value from agriculture. Policy-induced private investment, backed up by public sector financing to facilitate value chain development can set in motion a virtuous cycle of increased productive investment that can in turn boost government revenues from tax collections on corporate profits.
The World Bank is seeking services of a consulting firm to prepare an investment roadmap for two agricultural value chains: Sorghum and Livestock (Small Ruminants).

One of the projects that benefited from the TFSCB was the Sudan Statistical Capacity Building project.
