Rapid progress was made on the CAADP (Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme ) process in West Africa since the Maputo declaration in 2003, reflecting a growing recognition that regional coordination is key for boosting Africa’s agricultural sector. ECOWAS (Economic Community Of West African States) is the first region to sign the regional compact in 2009 and also the first region to finalise its Regional Agriculture Investment Plan (RAIP), in 2010.

The ECOWAS agricultural policy (ECOWAP), adopted in 2005, has prioritised key agricultural sectors. Rice has been selected as one of the strategic crops. This has led to the launch of a ‘Regional Offensive for the Sustainable Revival of Rice Production in West Africa’ in September 2012. The rice sector has also been put high on national agricultural agendas, and many countries, like Burkina Faso, also have a National Rice Development Strategy.
