Nic J.J. Olivier, Sheryl L. Hendriks, and Elizabeth Mkandawire, 2019. A Review of the Alignment of the Republic of Uganda's Draft Agriculture Sector Strategic Plan with the Malabo Commitments with Regard to Food Security and Nutrition. Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Security Policy Research Brief 79. East Lansing: Michigan State University.

Key Points to Consider:

It is essential that NAIPs:

  • Align to the SDGs, Agenda 2063, the Malabo Declaration and the long term national vision and medium term growth and development plan to ensure coherence in development efforts.
  • Malabo CAADP NAIPs seek to move beyond production to encompass inclusive economic growth, poverty reduction and the creation of employment through agricultural transformation agendas to achieve food security and nutrition for all.
  • Food security should be adequately conceptualized, including all four elements namely availability, access, nutrition and stability/resilience. Programs based only on production activities will not achieve the Malabo targets.
  • Strong and streamlined coordination structures are essential for effective coordination of comprehensive programs for food security and nutrition.
