During the official launch of the 15th CAADP Partnership Platform meeting in Nairobi by Kenya’s Deputy President William Ruto, and H.E. Josefa Leonel Correia Sacko, the African Union’s Commissioner for Rural Economy and Agriculture (AU DREA), AU DREA and the African Union Development Agency (AUDA-NEPAD) launched the a new communications toolkit for CAADP advocates, leaders, and focal points entitled, “Catalyzing Action & Agricultural Transformation in Africa: Understanding CAADP & the Biennial Review”. The toolkit, supported by Africa Lead, was launched alongside of the new African Union Knowledge Compendium on the Malabo Domestication, which was supported by GIZ.
Available in both English and French, the toolkit provides an online interactive application to navigate and explore the results of the 2018 Biennial Review and also provides a powerful interactive PowerPoint presentation slide deck.
The toolkit provides important CAADP and Biennial Review orientation slides, an overview of results of the 2018 Biennial Review (including all country scorecards in a easy to read format), and up to date information about the 2nd Biennial Review process.
Online Interactive Application – Explore the Results of the 2018 Biennial Review Report
As part of the online interactive application, users can view interactive maps by commitment area, view individual country and regional scorecards and results, compare country scores side-by-side, view all scores side-by-side and download additional resources and tools. From the resources page users can download the PowerPoint presentations and the Knowledge Compendium.
The African Union Knowledge Compendium on Domestication of the Malabo Declaration
The AU Knowledge Compendium on Malabo Domestication, published by AUC-DREA and AUDA-NEPAD and supported by GIZ, covers these processes and topics in 22 individual Knowledge Notes of four pages each. Their introductory character shall enable a wide group of stakeholders involved or interested in the continental and national CAADP processes to get a first, yet substantial, overview of the topics considered key for achieving the Malabo goals and targets. The Knowledge Notes address why those topics are key, provide guidance on how to adequately take them into account when developing national policies and frameworks for agricultural transformation and link to further information. They complement and break down the existing body of technical guidelines and information around the Malabo Declaration and its operationalization. As such, the Knowledge Compendium does not claim to be exhaustive. Rather, it intends to be a living document which is updated and added to regularly. The Knowledge Notes will be made accessible on the AUDA-NEPAD CAADP portal.
