22 May 2019Webinar.  Measuring Resilience – Understanding The Resilience indicators in the Biennial Review

The 2014 Malabo Declaration was a watershed moment in African Agricultural Transformation. It redefined agricultural development in broader, holistic and multifaceted terms, bringing in topics like resilience to fore. Additionally, the Malabo Declaration required Member States to monitor and collect data across a range of result areas every two years, in what has come to be referred to as the CAADP Biennial Review.

This webinar, hosted by the CAADP Peer2Peer Network, focused on how resilience is addressed in the Malabo declaration and, specifically how it is measured in the CAADP Biennial Review. More specifically, the webinar considered:

  • Why is Resilience an important topic in CAADP?
  • How is Resilience addressed in the Malabo Declaration?
  • What are the measures of Resilience contained in the Biennial Review?
  • What is the RIMA model and how can countries use it to measure progress on Resilience?
  • What are the next steps and how can one learn more about this topic?

18-22 March 2019. Accra, Ghana. To advance member state performance and participation in the 2nd Biennial Review process, the African Union (AU) Department of Rural Economy and Agriculture (AUC DREA) in partnership with Partnership for Aflatoxin Control in Africa (PACA) and the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation ACP-EU (CTA) hosted a continental reporting training and workshop.

The purpose of the workshop was to train member state representatives on new CAADP Biennial Review (BR) technical guidelines, orient participants on the new online data entry tool for the “e-BR”, and to agree on the Coordination Mechanism and Continental Roadmap for submitting the second Biennial Report to the AU Assembly in January 2020. The training covered various technical details of the BR indicators, data entry processes, review of in-country roadmaps towards the final BR report, and country-REC consultations on validation processes.
