The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) tool for the inclusion of livestock in the Comprehensive Africa’s Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) Compacts and Investment Plans shows that in 2006, CAADP was enriched by a Companion Document titled ‘Integrating Livestock, Forestry and Fisheries sub-sectors into the CAADP’, which defines priorities for development and areas of investment in these three sectors of agriculture.
