Side-event of the ReSAKSS Annual Conference, 8-10 October 2014 – African Union Headquarters, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The side-event aims to bring together policy-makers, representatives from farmers organisations, private sector, civil society and development partners for an open dialogue, and cross-regional learning, on progress made around the regional dimensions of CAADP. Discussion topics are framed in the context of the recently adopted Malabo Declaration on Accelerated Agricultural Growth and Transformation. This multi-stakeholder dialogue will suggest ways to boost intra-African agricultural trade through more effective continental and regional trade agreements and the promotion of inclusive regional value chain development, thus implementing the commitments and meeting the targets set by African Heads of State in the Declaration.

ECDPM’s Francesco Rampa will moderate the event.
