Trading Up: SADC Case Study

Intraregional trade in SADC is the highest within the eight RECs officially recognized by the African Union. SADC’s institutional framework includes both, a top-down approach for smooth co-ordination, and an inclusive approach that empowers stakeholders within member countries to engage in the formulation of regional policies and strategies. Moreover, the REC has invested significant efforts and resources in strengthening the effectiveness of its institutions. By actively aligning national and regional priorities reflected in the National Agriculture Investment Plans (NAIPs) and the Regional Agricultural Investment Plans (RAIPs), respectively, the REC ensures that trade and other agricultural sector interventions are optimized.
