The Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) establishes Africa’s policy framework for agricultural transformation. As part of this multi-country alignment, several nations agreed to increase agricultural investments to improve sustainable food security. Geospatial data and knowledge platforms may better connect partners and are central to mapping the impact of CAADP throughout sub-Saharan Africa, as well as providing an evidence-base for designing strategies.
