Making support to food security in Africa more effective: A summary of the independent assessment of the CAADP Multi-Donor Trust Fund
This Note summarizes the outcome of the Independent Assessment of the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF), undertaken by the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM), the Laboratoire d'Analyse Régionale et d'Expertise Sociale (LARES) and the Economic and Social Research Foundation (ESRF).1 The Independent Assessment revolved around three broad questions:
- Is the MDTF building the capacity of CAADP Lead Institutions supporting the implementation of CAADP?
- How far is CAADP implementation support through MDTF-sponsored institutions contributing to change in agricultural policymaking and planning in countries? What are other key perceptions of overall CAADP performance?
- Has the MDTF improved alignment and coordination in CAADP support?
