This e-Panel was held on 6 May 2020 by AVANTI and EvalForward.
Experts from Benin, Ghana and South Africa discussed on the importance of leadership and results-based management (RBM) in the African agricultural sector. Among factors mentioned that appear to be crucial for building a culture of results-based management are: the importance of leadership at all levels of government (from sub-national level to presidential and cabinet level), ministerial networks and alliances, and institutional stability. The panel also discussed challenges around capacity building, indicators and technology – and the work being done to overcome them.
