Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP)

est. 2003


CAADP is the agricultural programme of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD), which in turn is a programme of the African Union. CAADP focuses on improving food security, nutrition and increasing incomes in Africa’s largely farming based economies. It aims to do this by increasing public investment in agriculture and raising agricultural productivity.


The CAADP has four main objectives:

  • Extending the area under sustainable land management
  • Improving rural infrastructure and trade-related capacities for market access
  • Increasing food supply and reducing hunger
  • Agricultural research, technology dissemination and adoption
