Since the adoption of the Lagos Plan of Action and the Final Act of Lagos by African Heads of State and Government in 1980, Africa's efforts to bring about fundamental socio-economic structural changes have been constantly frustrated. In addition to domestic policy shortcomings in the implementation of the necessary policy reforms, African countries have been confronted with a host of external adverse factors. Prominent among these are the continuous worsening of the international economic environment particularly with respect to the collapse in the prices of primary commodities, mounting external indebtedness and decreasing net flows of public and private resources. This situation was further compounded by deteriorating weather conditions resulting in severe and persistent drought and increasing desertification.
