From 14-18th March, 2022, in Nairobi, Kenya, AU-IBAR convened a high-level technical Regional Workshop on Capacity Building on the Guidelines to Strengthen the Inclusion of Livestock in the R/NAIPs and the Initial Livestock Sector Review of the ECCAS CAP and PRIASAN.  The workshop was held under the Sustainable Development of Livestock for Livelihoods in Africa (Live2Africa Project), the ECCAS Commission in partnership with Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The AU-IBAR Live2Africa Project is jointly funded by the European Union and the African Union Commission. 
AU-IBAR is partnering with ECCAS, FAO, and other strategic partners to reformulate the ECCAS Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) and the PRIASAN). The formulation of the CAP and PRIASA are critical strategic initiatives. The CAP and PRIASAN represent the overarching frameworks for delivering against the Malabo Declaration, the CAADP goals, the livestock sector, the Livestock Development Strategy for Africa. The reformulation of both documents will better align the region with contributing to the African Union Agenda 2063 and the global targets espoused in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). The Workshop goal was to initiate the process of the livestock sector review of the CAP and PRIASAN, and to agree on a road map for the livestock sector process towards the formulation of the second generation documents.
