ECDPM is collaborating with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF) to pilot an approach to better connect the CAADP and EIF processes and improve the cross-sectoral linkages in four African LDCs: Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania and Zambia.
This Zambia national consultation will bring together various stakeholders (Ministry of Trade, Ministry of Agriculture, development partners, private sector representatives, etc.) to discuss and validate the findings of a study that has been undertaken to assess the state of alignment between trade and agriculture policy making in Zambia. It will also seek to identify concrete ways forward to improve the alignment of these policymaking processes in Zambia, so as to contribute to greater coherence between trade and agriculture policy in the country.
ECDPM’s Sean Woolfrey will co-chair this meeting.
