Download programme and concept note

The Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) was endorsed at the African Union Heads of States Summit as a New Partnership for African Development (NEPAD) program in July 2003. The overall goal is to 'Help African countries reach a higher path of economic growth through agriculture-led development, which eliminates hunger, reduces poverty and food insecurity  and enables the expansion of exports'.

This year forum will seek to bring out, in practical terms, the connections between CAADP, African Agriculture and the African Union (AU) 'Agenda 2063', as well as work on the Post 2015 Sustainable Development Goals.

SID will be present at this meeting to join in the launch of the Policy Brief  'Delivering Women Farmers Rights'.
