In pursuit of meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) the Africa Union’s (AU) New Partnerships for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) has called for three percent annual agricultural total factor productivity growth and six percent growth in agricultural GDP to reach the MDGs by 2015. In response to this, the World Bank designed the African Action Plan (AAP) as a centerpiece of its strategy to help Africa and its regional groups such as ECOWAS reach the MDGs. ECOWAS in response to the AAP formulated the West Africa Agricultural Productivity Programme (WAAPP) as the implementing instrument for achieving the objectives of increased agricultural productivity and sustainability and to support regional integration.
