The Sustaining CAADP Momentum exercise, undertaken in 2012-13 in order to look back at the 10 years of Comprehensive African Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) implementation, concluded that the CAADP vision was just as valid as it was in 2003 and that significant progress was made in building systems and capacity for planning, prioritisation and formulation of investment programmes. CAADP also mobilised multi-institutional and multi-sectorial interest and commitment to agriculture development. It was also noted that there is a conspicuous and growing demand for results and impacts in and by the agriculture sector. Subsequently, the CAADP Results Framework was developed.
The CAADP Results Framework provides Africa and its partners with a set of goals and results to be pursued in the transformation of the agriculture sector. It gives the political and technical impetus to foster policy alignment and harmonization of interventions geared at advancing the agriculture transformation agenda. It articulates the targets to be achieved over the next ten years, and provides the set of associated indicators. Accordingly, the Framework serves as a basis for promoting evidence-based policy and programmatic design, implementation, reporting, accountability and learning.
The Twenty-Third ordinary session of the African Union Assembly held in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea recommitted to the CAADP principles and goals and defined a set of targets and goals, referred to as the Accelerated Agricultural Growth and Transformation Goals 2025. In their Declaration in Malabo, the Heads of State recalled the progress made and noted the need for monitoring, tracking and reporting on the implementation of the Declaration using the CAADP Results Framework.
