The CAADP Results Framework 2015-2025 places emphasis on the role of the private sector as a central catalyst and driver of inclusive agribusiness development for sustainable agricultural growth. The framework is further underpinned by a strong commitment to realise improved African agriculture performance through increased private sector investment along the continent’s agricultural value chains.
- Integrating Agriculture in National Adaptation Plans (NAP-Ag) is a multi-year Programme funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) through its International Climate Initiative (ICI).
- It supports partner countries under a country-driven process to identify and address climate change adaptation measures for the agriculture sectors in relevant national planning and budgeting processes through the formulation and implementation of a National Adaptation Plan (NAP).
Video interviews from three African countries highlight the focus areas, gaps and needs as well as the priority that the NAP process has to ensure food security, livelihoods and sustainable development:
