ReSAKSS Annual Trends and Outlook Report

ABSTRACT

This report is one of the annual monitoring and evaluation (M&E) reports for the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) generated by the Regional Strategic Analysis and Knowledge Support System (ReSAKSS) network. The topic featured in this report is: public agricultural expenditure and investments. The overall objective is to review and analyse data and synthesize information on agricultural expenditure by the public and private sectors so as to shed light on the progress being made in addressing the problem of low investment in the agricultural sector. The report focuses on the member states of three regional economic communities, namely the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), the East African Community (EAC) and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD). Eleven countries, a subset of the member states of these regional economic communities (RECs), have come together to form a regional agricultural research organisation—the Association for Strengthening Agricultural Research in Eastern and Central Africa (ASARECA). To provide information on the progress being made in achieving CAADP indicators, the authors of this report have also aggregated information for ASARECA countries at regional level.
