Abstract: Despite commitment to the 2003 Maputo Declaration, South Africa has not yet formally launched a domestication process for the Comprehensive Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP) Maputo and Malabo Declarations, even though the National Development Plan and Medium Term Strategic Framework generally align with the continental growth agenda; and notwithstanding the country conducting an innovative, unique and inclusive consultation across the country between 2013 and 2015. A decision to submit a Biennial Review (BR) report on how the country stacks up against the Malabo commitments represents a bold step towards engagement and alignment. This paper presents the outcomes of the 2017 BR and seeks to identify where country's national policy framework and targets align with Malabo to support the process of domesticating CAADP. The discussion will assist South Africa and other countries in aligning a set of priority programmes and policies to facilitate faster progress towards attaining development targets.
