According to AFDB website, the overall goal of TAAT is to develop and deliver powerful and proven agricultural technologies to the Bank's RMCs as a means of achieving its bold Agricultural Transformation Agenda. It will allow Africa to better feed itself and transform its economies by targeting agriculture as a source of wealth and job creation. This goal for Africa has four main objectives; 1) eliminating extreme poverty, 2) ending hunger and malnutrition, 3) achieving food self-sufficiency and turning Africa into a net food exporter, and 4) setting Africa in step with global commodity and agricultural value chains.
The TAAT Project consists of three components:
Component 1. Production, Productivity and Competitiveness, with Production, Productivity, and Competitiveness subcomponents.
Component 2. Enablers, with Capacity Development, Policy, and Finance (including Instruments) sub-components
Component 3. Project Management and Coordination, with Clearinghouse, and Project Management sub-components.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AfDB
The Independent Review Mechanism (IRM), which is administered by the Compliance Review and Mediation Unit (CRMU), is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an African Development Bank (AfDB)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a dispute resolution dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the AfDB complied with its policies to prevent environmental and social harms. You can submit a complaint electronically by emailing email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and/or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can learn more about the IRM and how to file a complaint at https://www.afdb.org/en/independent-review-mechanism/.
