Concept Note


Organizers: AKADEMIYA2063, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), the CAADP Non-State Actor Group (CNG), and the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA).


The Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program (CAADP) Biennial Review (BR) has highlighted the enormous demand for timely, high-quality data to guide performance monitoring and decision-making. It has also underscored challenges related to data availability and quality, as well as the inadequate utilization of BR data and results. 


This partner event will bring together a broad and diverse group of CAADP stakeholders to 1. Assess current efforts and challenges in promoting the use of CAADP BR data and results, 2.  Learn about an interactive web-based CAADP BR Decision Support Tool for promoting the use of BR data and evaluating policy options, and 3. Identify opportunities, tools, incentives, and existing good practices for promoting greater use of CAADP BR data and results. Event speakers will also reflect on past and required efforts to make the CAADP BR more inclusive and diverse.
