Strengthening policy process in Africa

CTA launches a three-year project which will contribute to the process and implementation of agricultural and rural development (ARD) policies in Africa, especially the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program (CAADP). How? By promoting the empowerment and skills of regional farmer organisations, agribusiness and Members of Parliament for multi-stakeholder engagement in ARD policy processes.

This project comprises several activities: the first activity aims at redressing information asymmetry facing stakeholders; the goal of the second activity is to improve stakeholders' capacity to take informed positions on emerging topics that have implications for ARD policy. Thirdly, CTA wants to promote institution building and negotiation skills of farmers. The fourth activity is to enhance the evidence base to support appropriate ARD policies.
