African Union Commission Sustaining the CAADP Momentum – Implementation, Results and Impact9th CAADP Partnership Platform Meeting DRAFT AGENDA25-26 March, 2013 African Union Conference Centre; Addis AbabaETHIOPIA
PROGRAM OVERVIEWTHEMES HARNESSING ALTERNATIVE FINANCING MODELS FOR EFFECTIVE AGRICULTURAL INVESTMENTS1 Over the last few years, the CAADP country investment plans have become vehicles and tools for attracting public financing to the identified priority areas. There are increasing commitments from both governments and development partners to finance up to 70 percent of public commitments in country investment plans. Thus in many countries, there is need for additional resources of finance to support the full implementation of the country investment plans. A number of alternative sources of financing have not been effectively tapped to leverage the traditional public sector and development financing mechanisms. This theme, will focus on enhancing the existing sources of finance as well as exploring what the alternative sources can catalyze the available options. The focus will be on tapping from the abundant and potential private sector financing as well as existing and new catalytic funds available to finance African agriculture.2 STRENGTHENING COUNTRY LEADERSHIP AND OWNERSHIP Experience in CAADP implementation has demonstrated that stronger political commitment and leadership is essential in fostering commitment, ownership and implementation for results. Where strong political leadership and commitment has been exercised around CAADP implementation, progress has been realized. Sharing experience and learning lessons on how this works will be the centre of focus in sustaining the CAADP Momentum. A combination of a strong leadership from Permanent Secretaries and Ministers responsible for Agriculture with support from Heads of States in utilizing country investment plans as delivery instruments to agricultural will matter in delivery of agricultural services for results and impact. Hence the session will bring together Senior Policy makers including Ministers of Agriculture, Chief Executive Officers of RECs other high-level dignitaries to share their own experiences.3 ESTABLISHING INSTRUMENTS AND MECHANISMS FOR STRENGTHENING ACCOUNTABILITY Effective delivery for results and impact beyond leadership and commitment is to put in place instruments for monitoring, evaluation and reporting as strong instruments for strengthening accountability. Delivery for results and impact will require a package of interventions drawn from financing, leadership and commitment as well as effective mechanisms for accountability. Building from the recent progress in monitoring and reporting CAADP implementation through ReSAKSS, and Mutual accountability framework, coupled with the defined actions and targets done under the “Sustaining the CAADP momentum” exercise, and other pieces of work being commissioned, will constitute a new refined CAADP results framework. The detailed results framework will therefore define a future accountability system for CAADP. The role of civil society in CAADP implementation has improved. Under this session, an independent critic of what is perceived as progress from the “bird eyes” view of civil society will set a stage for what CAADP stands for.4 FOSTERING POLICY REFORMS, INSTITUTIONAL CHANGE AND STRUCTURAL TRANSFORMATION Inadequate policy and institutional reforms continue to stand in a way of effective CAADP implementation to achieve results and impacts. This is demonstrated in limited private sector engagement and investment in country investment plans. The session discussion with the private sector can help to illustrate how policy and institutional constraints will have to be addressed. Hence the session will discuss how the private sector sees the emerging policy and institutional reforms with reflection on what has worked and what needs to change in order to trigger additional private sector investment to complement the ongoing efforts such as the Grow Africa and the New Alliance. The session will further be guided to identify policy and intuitional blockages to investments and how these blockages have been turned into policy commitments to facilitate stronger investment in CAADP investment plans. These will be discussed as examples to create an understanding to all countries on how stakeholders can identify policy constraints and turn them into policy commitments and investments for implementation targeting results and impact. There are a number of areas, other than private sector, that continue to face policy and institutional challenges in their implementation. Some of these include; nutrition, land, food safety and others.
