Africa Lead II Team

Africa Lead II is a program dedicated to supporting and advancing agricultural transformation in Africa as proposed by the African Union Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program. Simultaneously, it contributes to USAID’s Feed the Future goals of reduced hunger and poverty by building the capacity of Champions—defined as men and women leaders in agriculture—to develop, lead, and manage the policies, structures, and processes needed for the transformation process. 

This report covers the program’s major accomplishments and outputs from October through December 2015. It covers the support and training that Africa Lead provides partners to improve institutional capacity to manage agricultural development and promote the effective, inclusive participation of non-state actors in the policy process, and the co-facilitation, logistical support and research that Africa Lead provides our partners to strengthen their capacity to manage and implement the policy change and alignment process. Activities and methods that involve consultation and coordination with food security organizations that contribute to evaluating impact and sharing learning are also included.
