- The vision and framework;
- Partnerships for sustainable land and water management;
- Mobilisation of US$150 million, leveraging US$1 billion, and

What progress has been made so far?
TerrAfrica: Under Pillar 1, the TerrAfrica Initiative has mobilised US$1 billion for investment in country programmes for sustainable land and water management through the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Strategic Investment Programme. The design of country programmes and disbursement of funds is already under way. Visit the TerrAfrica site here. [http://www.terrafrica.org/]
Conservation agriculture: In 2008 the Norwegian Government committed US$4 million in response to high food prices with a special focus on conservation agriculture. This was used in a joint NEPAD-FAO programme (2008-10) to scale up the adoption of conservation agriculture in Southern Africa.
Water and irrigation: Under Pillar 1 NEPAD coordinates, aligns and manages knowledge initiatives across the continent. An initiative to address regional constraints to scaling up investments in irrigation development was launched. Here NEPAD focused on ensuring that regional resource mobilisation directly supports country CAADP processes.
