The new web tool, AgInvest Africa, was developed by ReSAKSS-ECA and funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Joseph Karugia, coordinator of ReSAKSS-ECA, added, “The web portal facilitates partnerships, informs discussions on coordination and alignment of investments, guides advocacy and informs policy.”

According to USAID, AgInvest Africa is expected to track investments in the agricultural sector in line with commitments to implement the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP).

CAADP, a programme of the African Union in the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD), is Africa’s policy framework for agricultural transformation, wealth creation, food security and nutrition.

Karugia noted that the intention was to address constraints to agricultural development, including policy and institutional bottlenecks, lack of access to agricultural financing and inputs, limited access to markets and natural resources degradation.

The web portal contains information on Angola, DR Congo, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Sudan, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe, revealed the coordinator.
