The Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) and the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) will be exploring opportunities for operationalizing a partnership agreement signed on 3 November 2011. This follows a visit to the FANRPAN Regional Secretariat in Pretoria by the ECDPM Director, Dr Paul Engel, on Monday 20 February 2012 to officially launch the partnership agreement.

Tentative areas identified for collaboration between the two organisations include supporting regional processes around the CAADP agenda, and joint resource mobilization. Specific areas for collaboration will be outlined at a meeting between FANRPAN and ECDPM programme managers to be held on Thursday 22 February.
