Report on the CAADP, PAEPARD and Climate Change meeting
Maharaja Conference Centre, Gaborone, Botswana
29 November 2010
David Mmopelwa and Pinkie Kebakile


The national dialogue on the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP), Platform for Africa and European Partnership in Agricultural Research and Development (PAEPARD) and Climate Change was held on the 29th November 2010, in Gaborone, Botswana. The one day workshop was attended by 31 participants from different stakeholder groups, including government, research/academia, farmers unions, non-governmental organisations and private sector. The main objectives of the workshop were to sensitize stakeholders on CAADP and its implementation process, with a view to pave way for Botswana to ultimately sign the CAADP compact; to discuss how to build joint African-European multi-stakeholder partnerships in Agricultural Research for Development (ARD), towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as well as disseminate findings of the study on "Assessing the Vulnerability of Agriculture to Climate Change in Botswana" and hence solicit comments from stakeholders. The FANRPAN node hosting institution, BIDPA, organized the workshop.
