Established in 2006, the Regional Strategic Analysis and Knowledge Support System (ReSAKSS) provides policy-relevant analysis, data, and tools necessary to support the formulation and implementation of evidence-based agricultural sector policies and strategies in Africa.

By documenting and disseminating lessons learned from research, policies, impact assessments, and on-the-ground experiences, ReSAKSS supports the creation of better growth and poverty reduction strategies.

  By serving as a knowledge platform and resource storehouse, ReSAKSS supports policy planning and analysis, as well as dialogue on CAADP and, more broadly, Africa’s agricultural and rural development. The ReSAKSS website tracks over 30 core agricultural indictors including the CAADP and first MDG targets. The website features a mapping tool, datasets, ReSAKSS publications, and resources on the CAADP implementation process. In addition, ReSAKSS uses various social media platforms and regularly distributes a newsletter on African agricultural development.

ReSAKSS is a multi-country network, represented by four primary nodes: one at the continental or Africawide level (ReSAKSS-AW) and three at the subregional level: East and Central Africa (ReSAKSS-ECA), Southern Africa (ReSAKSS-SA), and West Africa (ReSAKSS-WA).
