FANRPAN to Participate in the 9th CAADP Partnership Platform
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
25 March 2013 - 26 March 2013

The African Union Commission (AUC) and the NEPAD Agency will hold the 9th Comprehensive African Agriculture Development (CAADP) Partnership Platform (PP) from March 25 to 26, to evaluate progress and achievements made in implementing CAADP.

CAADP is the Continent's main development programme to eliminate hunger and reduce poverty through agriculture. It has a clear objective to raise agricultural productivity in Africa to at least 6 per cent annually and requires African countries to commit at least ten per cent of their national budgets to agricultural development.

The PP is an annual high-level partnership platform, bringing together key stakeholders such as African governments, policy makers, civil society organisations and farmers' organisations to assess progress made in implementing the CAADP goals.

About 200 delegates from Africa and outside the Continent will attend the meeting at the AU's headquarters in Addis Ababa, which will open on March 25.

FANRPAN with support from USAID is sending a delegation of women farmers and youth to participate in the upcoming meeting. The women farmers will specifically participate in the Joint Rural Women Assembly being organised by ActionAid with other Non-State Actors and regional farmer's organisations.
