agreement (JDA) and related commitments
– Level 2: Collect, analyze, publish findings reviewing
progress in meeting commitments and achieving
objectives of JDA
– Level 3: Jointly review progress made on

Context for Policy Action Plan
When developing a Policy Action Plan, planners need to also
consider
1. Who will be interested in this policy change?
–
Who are the clients/ constituents / beneficiaries of this policy
change?
•
Minister? Farmers groups? Private sector?
2. Who will you report back to in order to carry policy
actions forward? Who will “champion” the policy action?
3. Do you need to do something to create more “demand”
for your team’s policy engagement?
Policy Action Plan

this tool to identify real steps needed to
implement policy changes, for CAADP
