By adopting the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) under the broader NEPAD initiative, African Heads of State and Government have recognised the critical role of the agricultural sector in promoting broad based development and thereby helping achieve the Millennium Development Goals in African countries.

Over the last year, the NEPAD Secretariat has developed and carried out a roadmap to speed up the implementation of CAADP Under the leadership of Regional Economic Communities, five regional implementation planning meetings were organised, attended by representatives of national governments, farmer organisations, agribusiness operators, and multilateral and bilateral development partners to identify regional medium and long term action plans, including early actions to be implemented over the next 12 months.
