Getting Down to Business: Scaling Up Agricultural Development in Africa

March 11, 2011

The Partnership To Cut Hunger And Poverty In Africa hosted the third annual US-Africa Forum,  “Getting Down to Business: Scaling Up Agricultural Development in Africa,” in Washington, DC on March 1-2, 2011.  The goals of the forum included assessing progress over the past year,  achieving ‘more and better’ investments in African agriculture, and developing recomendations for action to scale up the impact of the CAADP and Feed the Future initiatives.  To that end, the discussion focused on two themes: partnership and “learning while doing.”

Under the “learning while doing” theme, ReSAKSS’s Melissa Lambert co-presented the CAADP M&E Framework with Richard Mkandawire, Director of Partnerships and Resource Mobilization, African Union/NEPAD Agency.  The presentation is available here.
