On the 5th of September 2018, the Honorable Prime Minister of Rwanda, officially launched the Africa Agriculture Status Report 2018, which was commissioned by the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa. The 2018 Africa Agriculture Status Report seeks to address the key issue of how to enhance policy implementation. It acknowledges that Africa is not deficient of good policies and programmes. Of major concern is non-implementation of existing policies. Africa needs to establish the components and sequences of action that must be taken to achieve the objectives of the policies and programmes. This is against a background of African governments shouldering criticism for failing to implement policies, programmes and undertaking investments required for agricultural transformation.
