Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP)
The Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) is a good example of a framework that has inspired and energised African agricultural research institutions, farmers’ associations, African governments and the private sector who believe that agriculture has a pivotal role in development. In essence, CAADP is about boosting investment to stimulate growth in the agricultural sector. This means bringing together the public and private sectors and civil society – at the continental, regional and national levels – to increase investment, improve coordination, share knowledge, successes and failures, encourage one another and to promote joint and separate efforts.
This Community of Practice aims to provide a space for these stakeholders to share best African practice and leadership that have the potential to engender inclusive economic growth, benefit smallholder farmers, boost food production and end hunger across the continent.
