AU NAIP Toolkit for Malabo Domestication 2018
CAADP Implementation Documents
Back in 2016, the Country CAADP Implementation Guidelines under the Malabo Declaration were developed based on a long participatory process that absorbed information from a range of studies, meetings, country visits and events. These Guidelines were validated by all CAADP constituencies and provide very broad directions to countries to design and implement National Agriculture Investment Plans that are aligned to and consistent with the spirit, values and principles of CAADP as encapsulated in the Malabo Declaration. Having adopted such a document was an important step towards the right direction. However, there was an overwhelming consensus among CAADP constituencies that the Guidelines were not enough as they were not meant to be robust enough in supporting countries in their evidence-based planning efforts. It was therefore natural that another piece of work, focusing on the key metrics, main analytical questions, and tool for design, appraisal and tracking of countries’ performance was vital and had to be added to the package countries would need. This is how the idea of developing a NAIP 2.0 Toolkit was arrived at to support the second generation of NAIPs.
Working with IFPRI and ReSAKSS, the African Union Commission and the NEPAD Agency were able to mobilize and coordinate refined expertise from several institutions that had expressed interest in supporting this endeavor. Contributing institutions to the Toolkit include: University of Pretoria, IFPRI,ReSAKSS, CORAF, FAO, ReSAKSS, CIAT and Africa Lead. Substantive inputs from these institutions covered a wide range of technical areas including: Climate Smart Agriculture, Gender, Nutrition (Biofortification), Public Expenditure Analysis, Overarching growth and poverty goals and country modelling/ Regional trade, Regional trade/ Overarching growth and poverty goals and country modelling, Mutual Accountability, Typology, prioritization, and decentralized performance tracking, Foresight analysis, Agricultural Research and Development, and Value chains.
In complementing the Country CAADP Implementation Guidelines under the Malabo Declaration, the NAIP 2.0 Toolkit is a solid document at the disposal of all experts assigned to support national governments’ efforts towards complying with Malabo.
