PAEPARD

PAEPARD is a sustained partnership that mobilizes resources for priority projects that combine African and European institutional and financial resources for mutually advantageous projects.  Potential collaborations include RAILS and BASIC, where European expertise would be most valuable.

Objectives

PAEPARD seeks to strengthen African ARD stakeholders’ capacity to participate in European-led development initiatives for Africa and to create more responsive development programmes for Africa.  Its specific objectives are:

•To conduct studies that will assess and analyze past and present EU–Africa cooperation and its corresponding instruments of partnerships and identify gaps and opportunities for future collaboration

•To hold consultations to validate the study and present its rationale and findings

•To develop an information and communication strategy that can be used to increase participation by ARD stakeholders from Europe and Africa in efforts to implement the EU strategy for Africa and CAADP

•To strengthen the capacity of African ARD stakeholders to take part in African agricultural innovation and to participate in European development initiatives for Africa.

•To establish mechanisms for sustainable European–African partnerships.

Partners

The African partners in PAEPARD include the Eastern Africa Farmers Federation (EAFF), Le Réseau des Organisations Paysannes et des Producteurs de l’Afrique de l’Ouest (ROPPA), the Plateforme Régionale des Organisations des Producteurs de l’Afrique Centrale (PROPAC). The African partners also include Food Agriculture Natural Resources and Policy Analysis (FANRPAN) the Regional Universities Forum for capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM)

The European partners are AGRINATURA, COLEACP (representing the private sector), CSA (representing the NGOs) and ICRA, specialised in capacity building in ARD. The overall action of European partners in the project is coordinated by AGRINATURA through its secretariat.
