Click to download the report

The Maputo Declaration (2003) placed its 44 member African Countries on spotlight not only to increase their agriculture budget by 10% but increase their agricultural productivity by 6% annually.  The Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) was also established in 2003 as Africa’s policy framework for agricultural transformation, wealth creation, food security and nutrition, economic growth and prosperity for all. As a commitment, reaffirmation and amendment framework, The Malabo Declaration (2014) came into action to create an enabling environment for agricultural practices.

This report analyses the CAADP agricultural thematic performance on four East African Countries namely: Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania. The report narrows down to five themes from 2-6 in various agriculture categories and indicators to inclusively accommodate all the data required in the agricultural sector.

It further documents the findings regarding the data openness, availability, accessibility and its terms /conditions for use concurrently as per country performance. Delving to the availability and openness of the data in the four countries mentioned above, the major essence of this report is to highlight the key performance indicators lacking completely or partial data on the scorecards. This will not only enable to push the agenda of data availability, openness and accessibility but will largely improve on the development plans and policies derived from making the data available to the public.

Conclusively, in the discussion segment, the report gives an overview of the importance of availing this data to the public with its terms of use to bridge the gap within the agriculture sector at large on the performance indicators that scored 0% on having data.
