CAADP AFRICA FORUM
Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, 2010
By Alangheh Romanus Che on behalf of 5 RFOs
African Forum as an initiative of GTZ was important in sharing of success stories among agricultural stakeholders in Africa
However it did not have much endorsement from governments to successfully up scale success stories from across the continent
On the other hand CAADP process had endorsement but had no platform for stakeholders to share and upscale success stories, hence
CAADP Africa Forum 2009 (Nairobi) decided that subsequent forums should be led by RFOs
Regional RFOs in the Continent
ROPPA – West Africa
EAFF – Eastern Africa
SACAU - Southern African
UMAAGR –North Africa
PROPAC – Central Africa
These RFOs will launch Pan African Farmers Forum (PAFFO) in Lilongwe - Malawi
There has been a decline in Agricultural Production and income levels of the rural poor in Africa for the past 25 years. To reverse the situation RFOs in the continent do strongly advocate for:
The review of the technology pattern that was employed in the past
Review of the capacity profile of all those involved in technology transfer
Review the exiting policy and institutional framework
The Recognition and involvement of FO in defining policy decision, elaborating agricultural programs and projects as well as Monitoring and Evaluation
CAADP Process identifies with this philosophy
In addition, RFOs also:
Coordinates the collection of best-practices in production and post-production activities from across Africa
Consults with other stakeholders in identifying and defining the theme for the forum
Consults with other stakeholders in identifying participants and resource persons to the forum
To enable RFOs undertake their responsibility, there is need for their capacities to be strengthened through:
Provision of both financial and technical resources to strengthen their institutional and organizational to mobilize farmers in developing agriculture in the continent.
Provision of financial resources to upscale the success stories shared during the Forum across the continent
Strengthening the partnership and collaboration with AU and NEPAD in identifying challenges faced by producers in the sector and support farmers to independently review CAADP processes at national and regional level
