This paper describes preliminary lessons and experiences from the African Union/NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency�s Biennial Reviews process in which agricultural investment plans for every African Union Member State are reviewed every two years in order to track the country�s progress in the implementation of the Comprehensive African Agricultural Development Program (CAADP) and Malabo commitments that were made by African Union Heads of State in June 2014 in Equatorial Guinea, on how to improve agriculture. We have analysed documents from the African Union, previous meeting notes and other literature to in order to understand the Biennial review processes and draw conclusions on how best countries can improve their processes and possibly their biennial reviews scores going forward.
