6 6 The need to boost participation of Non State Actors in the transformation of African agriculture The goal: Agriculture-led socio-economic growth that will create wealth, tackle poverty and reduce hunger Which requires: Broad and inclusive coalitions committed to acting in concert to improve the sector’s policies, programming and institutions. The problem: Working partnership can be a new way of doing business. Challenges to State and Non State Actors working together include: Legitimacy of representation Resources Capacity Awareness Accountability Balance of interests - women, grassroots, consumers and the environment. How can we ensure Non State Actors are able to fully contribute to transforming the agricultural sector?

7 7 Progress in 2011 “Guidelines for NSA participation in the CAADP process” finalised in French and English, endorsed at 7 th PP and communicated widely Non State Actor Coordination Task Team formed and established action plan Guidelines piloted through workshops in Zimbabwe, Malawi, Madagascar, The Gambia, Sierra Leone and Kenya Roll-out of workshops underway for Ethiopia, Mali, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia with support from Africa LEAD.

19 19 The Guidelines for Non State Actor participation in CAADP processes Regional and continental-level Regional and continental NSA have key roles to play: 1. Supporting country-level processes Helping country-level counterparts through awareness-raising, training, advocacy and tackling issues that are common across multiple countries. 2. Supporting regional investment planning and policy reform Working with RECs through structures and processes that mostly mirror the guidelines recommended for the country-level Establishing “regional NSA support group” if the REC has not yet established a regional team 3. Representing NSA interests in continental processes E.g. structured participation in PP, Mutual Accountability exercises, MDTF Partnership Committee. Ensuring adequate and effective financing architecture is in place for NSA Also linking to global processes and platforms as required

22 Creating Strong Stakeholder Engagement in Food Security & Agriculture CAADP DP TT - INGO CONSULTATION Brian Greenberg InterAction September 23, 2011

23 RATIONALE FOR STRONGER STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT Magnitude & complexity of development challenge Requires ‘whole of society’ mobilization Broad buy-in by NSAs expands outreach & scale Aid Effectiveness principles, especially : Broad, inclusive ‘ownership’ Accountability, transparency and alignment Strong endorsement in CAADP & FtF strategies

24 RATIONALE FOR STRONGER STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT Better address key constraints Resources Food security & agriculture generally an afterthought Must mobilize public & full range of ‘private’ investment Political will to address rural needs Amplify voice of stakeholder coalitions on priorities & policies Enhance credibility of development investments Reduce perceptions of top-down decision making & special interest bias Broaden oversight & democratize economic governance Improve prospects for sustainability

25 CLOSING THE ‘ENGAGEMENT GAP’ Principles, process & payoff of multi-stakeholder engagement not yet well understood or applied Some policy makers and program managers ambivalent about ‘participation’ Apply criteria & standards for stakeholder engagement for consistency and credibility Aid Effectiveness + Open Forum principles + successful participatory models Shift paradigm from limited, initial consultations to substantive, sustained partnerships

26 CREATING AN ENABLING ENVIRONMENT FOR ENGAGEMENT Strengthen policy, legal & regulatory ‘operating space’ for civil society Establish Accra principle of ‘full participation’ as norm Put in place process mechanisms for States & NSAs to engage and coordinate across program cycle Identify incentives and clarify expectations for State institutions & actors re. NSAs

27 CAPACITY BUILDING Most development actors need new organizational capabilities & approaches for engagement Assess then Strengthen States: stakeholder-friendly engagement, partnership process, accountability; NSAs: policy analysis, M & E, program standards Up-front costs of capacity building offset delays, inefficiency & limited effectiveness of conventional approach Build on existing organizational relationships to strengthen capacity -- ‘learning by doing’ provides multiple payoffs

28 Table Group Discussion on Frameworks for NSA Engagement  What questions do you have about the Frameworks?  How might your organization use the Frameworks to strengthen NSA engagement?  Is there anything missing from the NSA Framework that would make it more useful? If so, be specific about what is missing. You have 10 minutes. Be prepared to report key questions & recommendations. 28
