Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS)

 There are seven NEPAD programmes being implemented in ECCAS.

Current Programs:

  1. CAADP

  • ECCAS signed the Regional CAADP Compact on 10 July 2013. A Regional Investment Plan is in place and an independent technical review was undertaken for the Regional Agriculture Investment Plan.

  • ECCAS has 11 Member States – Angola,  Burundi,  Cameroon,  Central African Republic,  Chad,  Democratic Republic of Congo,  Equatorial Guinea,  Gabon,  Republic of the Congo,  São Tomé and Príncipe – which all have signed the CAADP Compact and are at varying stages in the CAADP process. 

  • A performance-based Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in the interest of achieving regional and continental integration. The purpose of the MoU is to establish a framework for cooperation and collaboration that is based on work and fund flow that is targeted for the implementation of high impact projects.

  • Various stakeholders ranging from government and the private sector through to farmers, particularly women, youth and small-holder farmers, have been reached through targeted communication campaigns which has resulted ECCAS seen as the implementing partner for agricultural activities in member states and the region, giving it high visibility and credibility.  The CAADP process is now being formally recognised as the framework for agricultural growth.  

  1. Agriculture Technical and Vocational Education and Training
  • ECCAS was sensitised on the implementation of Agricultural Education and Skills Improvement Framework (AESIF). Twenty countries represented ECCAS and ECOWAS at the Yamoussoukro workshop held on 21-24 July 2015. 

  1. Gender, Climate Change and Agriculture Support Programme (GCCASP)

ECCAS was involved in the consultations that informed the design of the project; and will continue to work closely with NEPAD in up-scaling the project to more African countries.
