The Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) was established by the Assembly of the African Union (AU) in 2003. The Programme’s main aim is to raise agricultural productivity by at least 6% per year while increasing public investment in agriculture to 10% of the annual national budgets. Following an initial focus on interventions at the national level, there is growing awareness of the need to work more on the regional dimensions of the CAADP. In this context, the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) undertakes, with its African partners, relevant policy-oriented analysis and multi-stakeholder dialogue facilitation around the regional CAADP issues and processes as well as on their linkages with the broader regional integration dynamics, in various African regions. This paper focuses on regional water management and cooperation in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and its Regional Agricultural Policy (RAP), with the objective to stimulate further discussions among involved stakeholders, to contribute to the consultative processes and implementation of CAADP at regional level, as well as contribute to lessons-sharing across Africa on regional approaches to water for agricultural production.
