Agricultural Transformation: Rwanda and Ethiopia Score Best in 2017

The African Union Commission has released its 2017 draft progress report on the implementation of the Malabo Declaration on Accelerated Agricultural Growth and Transformation for Shared Prosperity and Improved Livelihoods.

Its ranking of countries in Africa places Rwanda (score of 6.1) at the top of the list followed by Ethiopia (5.3), Malawi (5), and Mauritius (5). The benchmark for African countries was 3.9, which is the minimum score for a country to be on track for implementing the Malabo Declaration. Twenty-six countries failed to reach this score and twelve failed to report. Other countries in the Horn of Africa scored poorly such as Djibouti (3.2) and Sudan (1.9) or failed to report: Eritrea, Somalia, and South Sudan.
