In 2004, BMZ was one of the first organizations to partner with IFPRI in supporting the NEPAD Secretariat and the implementation of CAADP. BMZ’s partnership allowed IFPRI, between 2004 and 2007, to prepare a roadmap to guide the CAADP implementation process, establish the program’s credibility among development partners, and facilitate the adoption of the CAADP agenda by more than 20 African countries and by regional economic communities. From 2008 to 2011, IFPRI assisted the NEPAD Secretariat and regional economic communities in implementing and advocating for the CAADP agenda at the regional, sub-regional, and national levels. IFPRI also helped build the capacity of national teams and experts to lead the analytical work.
Ten years after its establishment, the IFPRI-facilitated ReSAKSS in Africa serves as a vital support to the implementation of CAADP. On October 18-20, 2016, the 2016 ReSAKSS Annual Conference will be held in Accra, Ghana to review and discuss the CAADP implementation.
