Monitoring African Agricultural Development Processes and Performance: A comparative analysis

The ReSAKSS flagship report, Monitoring African Agricultural Development Processes and Performance: A comparative analysis provides an analysis of trends in GDP growth, agricultural development, and poverty and hunger indicators from the 1990s to the present.  The report also offers an outlook for 2011 and beyond.   In addition, the report highlights progress toward implementation of  Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) as well as progress toward CAADP targets, including the achievement of 6% average annual growth in the agricultural sector and 10% agricultural investment allocation.

The report identifies three factors that enables environment enables success within the CAADP framework.

  • Policy and Institutional Environment – A healthy global and domestic political environment, dynamic institutional support and sensible funding initiatives directed at food an nutrition security will be definitive of positive CAADP progress.
  • Official Development Assistance – As countries invest in a long-term agricultural strategy, they become less dependent on emergency food aid, and therefore more self-sufficient.
  • Macroeconomic Governance and Performance – GDP growth, reduction in inflation and significant improvement of the debt-to-GDP ratio are each necessary factors for great country performance.

The analysis discusses which countries that have or have not met these criteria, and how and why they did.  A thorough evaluation of the CAADP planning, implementation and review of agricultural efforts also introduces trends related to welfare outcomes, meeting MDG1 goals and halving poverty and hunger.
