Steps to Access & Application Procedure: 

CAADP implementation is a country process. Everything related to decisions, actions and implementation is within the responsibility and custodianship of country systems with Governments taking special leadership roles. So CAADP in this way also represent a clear country led initiative and the thrust for in-situ evidence-based analysis and prioritisation also ensure the agenda is local and reflects needs and aspirations of the local communities

The African Union Commission (AUC), the NEPAD Agency and Regional Economic Communities (RECs) are working with various players and stakeholders– local, regional and international, bilateral and multilateral, private, public and civil society – in rallying coordinated and coherent programmes and initiatives to support countries (and regions in terms of the regional agriculture development programmes) along the four specific segments of the country CAADP implementation process. At country level, the support is organised and coordinated through the offices of the Permanent Secretary (Principal Secretary) in the Ministry of Agriculture. The Country CAADP Team is a multi-partner team coordinated within the office and powers of the Permanent Secretary and is responsible for the legwork in coordination and championing CAADP implementation in the country.
