The Themes have been carefully crafted to reflect the aspirations of the CCARDESA stakeholders within the SADC Member States and
the desire to achieve a high impact on the value chains in the region.

The 6 priority thematic areas and their associated envisaged outputs are presented below

  1. Agricultural productivity and food and nutrition security;
  2. Resilience to emerging agricultural risks: environmental, climate change and transboundary pests and diseases;
  3. Commercialisation of the agricultural sector and market access
  4. Women, youth and social inclusion
  5. Knowledge and information management, communication and policy support; and,
  6. Capacity strengthening of CCARDESA and AR4D institutions

CCARDESA will develop a robust Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting and Learning (MERL) system. Based on the results framework, CCARDESA will also develop an M&E plan which will enable CCARDESA to track, evaluate and report on the implementation of this Strategic Plan at regional and national levels.
