The Communications Specialists in the CAADP XP4 institutions have set in motion collaborative working plans towards the implementation of the visibility and communications strategy of the EU-funded project.
The CAADP-XP4 aims at strengthening the implementing organisations to collectively support African countries to contribute to the delivery of CAADP results through inclusive regional and international partnerships; production and exchange of climate-relevant agricultural knowledge; effective communication, monitoring and evaluation; promotion and effective use of science, knowledge and innovation; and representation of the sub-regional and national, regional at continental levels.
In the two-day consultative meeting, Communications persons in the CAADP XP4 implementing organisations; FARA, AFASS, ASARECA, CCARDESA AND CORAF, familiarised themselves with the technical components of CAADP XP4 and got a deeper understanding of the communications and visibility expectations of the project.
The team also developed a joint communication and visibility strategy that will assure coherence and alignment in coordinating and disseminating, tracking and evaluating the communication and visibility of the CAADP XP4 project. A joint action plan for implementing the CAADP XP4 communication and visibility strategy has also been developed where areas of common interest have been identified in each organisation’s communications and visibility work plan.
AFAAS, ASARECA, CCARDESA, CORAF and FARA are co-implementing the Ex- Pillar 4 Africa Regional and Sub-regional Organizations for Agricultural Research and Innovation (CAADP-XP4) Project. The project which aims at strengthening these institutions to carry out their mandates is financially supported by the European Union (EU), and administered by International Fund for Agricultural Development for a period of four years, 2019-2023.
