Land Governance Country Assessment For New Agricultural Investment Plan - Botswana

Etablished in 2003, the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) is the African Union’s policy framework for agricultural transformation of the continent. It aims to contribute to a significant increase in agricultural productivity in Africa’s mostly agriculture-based economies. With the adoption by the AU General Assembly in June 2014 of the Malabo Declaration on Accelerated Agricultural Growth and Transformation, CAADP has gained renewed political momentum. At the heart of the implementation process are country-specific strategies, the National Agriculture Investment Plans (NAIPs), that aim to increase investment and productivity in agriculture. This Policy Brief is the result of an in-depth country level Land Policy and Land Governance Assessments undertaken by NELGA experts with the objective to strengthen and mainstream land issues in the successor (or 2nd generation) NAIP and to contribute towards achieving the Malabo targets.
