The Regional Strategic Analysis and Knowledge Support System (ReSAKSS) is an Africa-wide network established to provide readily available analysis, data, and tools of the highest quality to promote evidence-based decisionmaking, improve awareness of the role of agriculture for development in Africa, fill knowledge gaps, promote dialogue, and facilitate the benchmarking and review processes associated with the Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) agenda of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) and African Union (AU) and other regional agricultural development initiatives in Africa.

ReSAKSS is organized as a network of three nodes among the major regional economic communities in Africa. Each node, at the country level and Africa-wide, has set up a network of national, regional, and international partners that provide policy-relevant and timely analysis, data, and tools of the highest quality. The goal is to promote evidence-based decisionmaking, improve awareness of the role of agriculture for development in Africa, fill knowledge gaps, promote dialogue, and facilitate the benchmarking and review processes associated with the CAADP agenda.
