CAADP NSAs sensitization and monitoring of implementation progress

The Comprehensive African Agricultural Development Program (CAADP) is “a pan-African framework to help countries critically review their own situations and identify investment opportunities with optimal impact and returns in the agriculture sector”. Inherent in this definition is the expectation of Non State Actors (NSA) to be more active in the generation and analysis of usable data and thereby play a critical role in planning, implementation and accountability in the CAADP process. The Agricultural Council of Kenya (AgCK) is a platform through which NSAs in Kenya coordinate their efforts towards progressive engagement with public sector to improve sector policy and practice, for the benefit of all the players and particularly the farmers. Inview of this, the Council has been sensitizing NSAs on the compact hence facilitating mutual accountability principle.  It has also been instrumental in coordinating NSAs to hold the government to account on the Malabo commitments.
