About ALive

on .

To fulfil its mandate, the African Union Interafrican Bureau for Animal Resources (AU-IBAR) needs a partnership forum to facilitate discussion, advocate for resource mobilization, advance policy advice and facilitate access to global knowledge for stakeholders in African animal agriculture and environment. This will add value to national and regional actions and programs in advancing the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Program (CAADP) livestock sub-sector agenda.

Rationale

ALive is a partnership based on a multi-stakeholders' platform to reposition the African livestock sector into the development agendas of the national, regional and international policy makers, by emphasizing its crucial impacts in terms of poverty alleviation and sustainable economic growth and its overall contribution to achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). ALive is positioned to support actions in the livestock sector to be undertaken by the New Partnership for Africa's Development, notably through the CAADP.
