CAADP in practice: Highliting the successes (2011; 703KB)
In establishing CAADP, NEPAD set it a bold goal: to eliminate hunger and reduce poverty through agriculture. To achieve this goal, CAADP addresses policy and capacity issues across the entire agricultural sector and the African continent.

CAADP is entirely African-led and African-owned and represents African leaders' collective vision for agriculture in Africa. To realise their vision, the leaders agreed to increase public investment in agriculture by a minimum of 10% of their national budgets and to raise agricultural productivity by at least 6%.

Moving Towards the Implementation of the CAADP Framework in the Agriculture Sector: The case of Mozambique (2011; 753KB) This paper was prepared as background information for the formal launch of the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) process in Mozambique by the Government in November 2010. It summarizes country actions towards CAADP framework adoption since the first such attempts were made back in 2004, through the then Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.

CAADP Success Stories - Ethiopia (2011; 300KB ) Ethiopia signed a CAADP Compact in September 2009 and, with the support of experts engaged through CAADP, immediately set about preparing its Policy and Investment Framework (PIF) – a roadmap for Ethiopia's agriculture and rural development over the next decade.

CAADP Success Stories - Ghana
(2011; 300KB) Even before Ghana signed its CAADP Compact in October 2009, it was working with CAADP on reviewing and revising its 2002 Food and
Agricultural Sector Development Policy (FASDEP). CAADP has helped promote stakeholder engagement in policy-making and develop the investment plan that is necessary to put this policy into action.

CAADP Success Stories - Rwanda (2011; 277KB ) Rwanda was the first country to adopt the CAADP process, having signed the CAADP Compact in 2007. The revised Plan for the Strategic Transformation of Agriculture (PSTA II), developed with CAADP support, was the basis of the government's investment plan presented at a CAADP-led business meeting with key stakeholders in 2009.

CAADP Success Stories - Policy and inclusiveness (2011; 300KB) The policy environment is the key to progress in agricultural development and poverty alleviation. This is why the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) is focusing on improving agricultural policy processes, including promoting the engagement of key stakeholders, such as farmers, the private sector and donors.

CAADP Success Stories - Harnessing African expertise (2011; 275KB ) Over the years, expatriate consultants and academics have played a large part in agricultural policy analysis and strategic investment planning in Africa. As a result, opportunities for Africans to gain valuable experience have been lost.

CAADP Success Stories - Aid coordination (2011; 270KB ) The CAADP framework embraces the five principles of the 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness: country ownership of development policies and strategies; alignment of donors' support with partner countries' strategies and policies; harmonisation of donor approaches to avoid duplication of effort; managing for results; and mutual accountability for development results.
