The stated aim of Eastern and Central Africa Programme for Agricultural Policy Analysis (ECAPAPA) is to promote regional economic growth through application of growth-enhancing agricultural policies and, in the process, to help build a sustainable capacity in eastern and central Africa to utilise and contribute to agricultural policy research and analysis.

To accomplish its objectives and contribute to the overall goal, the Programme has three specific tasks:

  • capacity building primarily directed towards the National Agricultural Research Institutes, to increase their ability to affect policy and to relate their technology development programmes to existing policy
  • to improve regional agricultural policy through supporting policy analysis in selected thematic areas
  • to support a network among interest groups, policy analysts and decision-makers to coordinate and link agricultural policy activities in the region.

Their website contains details of all their activities and partners and contains a small library of their own publications.

Recent trends in agricultural growth and food security in Eastern and Central Africa (ECA) have been discouraging. With very low labor productivity, yields, and growth rates, agriculture is unable to keep up with population growth or achieve the type of pro-poor growth needed to reduce poverty dramatically.Yet agriculture accounts for about half of the region’s gross domestic product (GDP) and is the main source of livelihood for the majority of the population. Behind this gloomy picture, however, lies agriculture’s potential to be the engine for growth in ECA.
