More specifically, the EU is supports the RAP to 1) implement of the regional Food and Nutrition Security Strategy; 2) enhance information management on agricultural production, sustainability and competitiveness for evidence-based decision-making; and 3) improve access to markets by deploying plant and animal pest and disease control strategies at the regional level.

A SADC Agricultural Information Management platform was recently launched to enhance the development of data-driven agricultural policies at the national, regional and global levels.
