Overall, the 2018 Biennial Review indicates that African Union states are not on-track to meet CAADP/Malabo goals by 2025
June 13, 2019, Nairobi, Kenya – The African Union Commission in conjunction with AUDA/NEPAD has launched a new digital toolkit and Knowledge Compendium for African leaders, food security champions and institutions, to advocate for, and educate the public and policymakers about the continental goals aimed at reducing poverty and increasing food security on the continent.
Launched during the 15th Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) Partnership Platform, the digital communications toolkit and compendium targets users including AU Heads of State and Government; government officials, media, regional intergovernmental organizations; non-state actor organizations, and farmer organizations among others.
The toolkit focuses on the core concepts of CAADP and the results of the January 2018 Inaugural Biennial Review (BR) Report on the Implementation of the Malabo Declaration. The results of the 2018 report showed that 20 of the 47 countries were on track towards achieving the Malabo Declaration commitments, and 27 countries were not on track. Overall, the 2018 Biennial Review indicates that African Union states are not on-track to meet CAADP/Malabo goals by 2025.
The African Union is currently supporting countries and Regional Economic Communities in the process of the 2nd Biennial Review, which will be released and reported on in January 2020 at the AU Assembly. The Knowledge Compendium focuses on the domestication of the Malabo Declaration into country national agriculture investments plans and processes.
Developed in collaboration with development partners, the communications toolkit and knowledge compendium helps food security champions and leaders facilitate easier communication and dissemination of CAADP and the BR across a variety of audiences and platforms. Further, the toolkit includes a downloadable PowerPoint presentation and interactive set of online tools to help users explore the results of the 2018 BR report. The PowerPoint presentation includes; introductory slides about the history of CAADP; the design, intention and results of the 2018 BR process including individual country scorecards; and information about the 2020 BR process. The online interactive version includes the ability to view interactive maps by commitment area, view individual country and regional scorecards and results, compare country scores side-by-side, view all scores side-by-side and download resources and tools, including the PowerPoint presentations and the Knowledge Compendium on Malabo Domestication.
