The Malabo Declaration on Accelerated Agricultural Growth and Transformation for Shared Prosperity and Improved Livelihoods reaffirms the central commitment of the Maputo era, namely to allocate 10% of public resources to agriculture. It also specifies more clearly a range of commitments in agriculture, such as increased irrigation and mechanization or in the form of curtailing post-harvest losses. So, in contrast to the Maputo Declaration, it contains many more commitments in areas like infrastructure, natural resources, land tenure, trade and nutrition. These areas are important to agriculture, but they are not (completely) under the mandate of the Ministry of Agriculture.

Thus, the Malabo Declaration is wider than its predecessor; at the same time though, it continues to view CAADP as the main vehicle for implementation of its commitments, as was the case in Maputo.
