English to Swahili: Maputo Declaration General field: Medical Detailed field: Poetry & Literature
Source text - English Fifteen years after the Maputo Declaration, only seven countries—Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Niger, Mali, Malawi, Senegal and Zambia—have consistently met this target. In fact, countries like Malawi even went beyond the target, achieving as high as 21% in 2013 compared to the average of 3.1% for sub-Saharan Africa. Several factors account for underinvestment in agriculture in Africa. The implementation of the Structural Adjustment Programme in Africa reduced agriculture financing; low international funding of agriculture weakens policy space for agricultural spending; low political will to accelerate input subsidies, expand extension workers, research and rural infrastructure, and high lending rates limit small-scale farmers’ access to finance. Land reform is key to address fragmentation and maximize the benefits of economies of scale in land use. African governments must be given policy space to invest in agriculture and agribusinesses to propel economic diversification.
Translation - Swahili Miaka kumi na mitano tangu Azimio la Maputo, ni mataifa saba tu—Burkina Faso, Misri, Niger, Mali, Malawi, Senegal na Zambia—yametimiza lengo hili. Kwa hakika, mataifa kama Malawi yamezidisha lengo hili huku yakifikia asilimia 21 mwaka 2013 ikilinganishwa na kiwango cha wastani cha asilimia 3.1 ya Afrika Kusini mwa Jangwa la Sahara. Kuna masuala kadha yanayochangia uwekezaji duni katika kilimo barani Afrika. Utekelezaji wa Mpango wa Marekebisho ya Miundo barani ulipunguza fedha za kilimo; ufadhili duni wa kimataifa wa kilimo unapunguza nafasi ya sera za matumizi ya kilimo; nia duni ya kisiasa ya kuharakisha utoaji wa ruzuku kwa pembejeo, kuongeza wafanyakazi wa ugani, utafiti na miundomsingi wa vijijini na viwango bei ya juu ya mkopo hupunguza upatikanaji wa fedha kwa wakulima wa mashamba madogo. Mageuzi ya ardhi ni muhimu kwa kushughulikia mgawanyiko na kuinua mapato ya kutumia ardhi kwa mapana. Serikali za Afrika zinapaswa kupewa nafasi ya sera kuwekeza katika kilimo na kilimo cha biashara ili kuendeleza mseto wa kiuchumi.
