8th CAADP-PP meeting due to be held in Kenya
Addis Ababa, May 3, 2012 (WIC) - The 8th Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program (CAADP) Partnership Platform (PP) Meeting would be held from 3rd-4th May 2012, Nairobi, Kenya, AU said.
The overall objective of the meeting is to contribute to effective implementation of the CAADP agenda within and across the various levels in Africa.
The need for the CAADP-PP was reaffirmed at the meeting of the African Partnership Forum (APF) in May 2006 which recognized the platform as an instrument to rally commitment and partnership as well as to promote alignment and harmonization of efforts supporting African agriculture.
The CAADP-PP was established as, and continues to be, a voluntary forum open to all interest groups, players and stakeholders.
Since 2006, the African Union Commission (AUC), the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency (NPCA) and Development Partners have organized seven PP meetings in different parts of Africa.
The program has raised the profile of the agricultural sector in national domestic politics and the attention to agriculture has significantly increased.
It has also contributed to more specific, purposeful and incentive-oriented agricultural policies.
AU said CAADP has facilitated a noticeable improvement and progress towards donor coordination, harmonization and alignment to country priorities.
The establishment of CAADP-PP was a key recommendation coming out of the 2005 consultative process involving the African Union Commission (AUC), New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) Planning and Coordinating Agency (NPCA), the Regional Economic Communities (RECs), national governments, the private sector, Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) including Farmers Organizations and Development Partners, it said.
