ABSTRACT

The third (2021) BR report and the associated Africa Agriculture Transformation Scorecard were launched at the 35th African Union (AU) Summit in February 2022. This brief draws on that report to summarize the performance of partner states from the East African Community (EAC) region in pursuit of the seven Malabo Declaration commitments and assesses the challenges faced and the lessons learned by the region.


The brief also reviews policy and programmatic changes in the EAC region induced by the inaugural BR of 2017 (AUC 2018), the second BR of 2019 (AUC 2020), and the most recent BR. The final section of the brief highlights several policy actions EAC partner states must take to meet their Malabo Declaration commitments by 2025.


At the time the third BR report was being prepared, EAC was comprised of six partner states—the Republic of Burundi, the Republic of Kenya, the Republic of Rwanda, the Republic of South Sudan, the United Republic of Tanzania, and the Republic of Uganda. While not considered in this brief, the Democratic Republic of Congo joined the regional grouping in July 2022 as a seventh partner state.
