Home / Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP)

The Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) is a flagship continental programme for member states of the African Union including Uganda.

African Ministers of Agriculture met at the Headquarters of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) in Rome, Italy on the 9th of June 2002 under the auspices of the FAO Regional Conference for Africa.

The purpose of their special follow-up session was to review an earlier draft of this document – the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) – prepared by FAO in co-operation with the Steering Committee of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD).

The Conference welcomed and endorsed CAADP and agreed on the need to quickly operationalise it. The Conference also offered guidance to member governments on a wide range of aspects of operationalisation and action to revitalise African agriculture.
