South Africa, the SADC Economic Partnership Agreement, and Regional Integration in Southern Africa

South Africa, the SADC Economic Partnership Agreement, and Regional Integration in Southern Africa
(Policy Brief No. 42)

CCR Policy 42

This CCR policy brief emanates from a policy advisory group seminar held in Cape Town on 17 July 2018. Bringing together about 30 government, business, and civil society actors, the meeting sought to provide a platform for knowledge-sharing and dialogue on the issues raised by the SADC economic partnership agreement (EPA); and to strengthen participants’ capacity to engage with the implications of the EPA for regional integration. The meeting sought to address a widely recognised need to ensure greater civil society involvement in the implementation of the agreement. It also focused on two key agriculture and agro-processing sectors: poultry and fisheries. The seminar was hosted by CCR in partnership with the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) South Africa office.
