Assessing Progress Towards the African Union’s 10 Per Cent Budget Target for Agriculture
Report for ActionAid (June 2009)
This report assesses government progress towards achieving the targets set by the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP). It finds that the overwhelming majority of African governments are failing to meet their commitments to spend 10 per cent of national budgets on agriculture and to double spending on research and development. Donors are also failing to meet their aid commitments to African agriculture.
