The Sustainable Agricultural Mechanization: A Framework for Africa (SAMA) was
developed in response to a request by the African Union (AU) and endorsed by the AU
Specialized Technical Committee (STC) on Agriculture, Rural Development, Water and
Environment meeting in October 2017. It responds to both the Malabo Declaration and
AU Agenda 2063 and is a result of discussions with policy makers and experts from AU
member states, the AU Commission, FAO and key partners. It offers a detailed look at
the history of machinery in Africa and points the way towards addressing challenges
and creating new opportunities to assure the successful adoption of mechanization.
The long version of this report presents a framework for sustainable agricultural
mechanization strategies in Africa, with a menu of priority elements for countries to
consider in developing their strategies for sustainable agricultural mechanization (SAM).
