It also examines the form of the RAP and its implications; an operationalisation mechanism and its implications while a final section is entitled « Towards the Regional CAADP Compact ».
A companion document (269 pages) contains five working papers commissioned in support of the policy process. The papers examine key aspects of food security in SADC.
