The paper emphasized three major characteristics of AAF-SAP. First, it should be noted that the alternative framework is not a standard programme to be applied indiscriminately in all countries under all circumstances. Secondly, as a human-centered framework, AAF-SAP implies full democratization of all aspects of economic and social activities and in all stages from decision-making to implementation. Thirdly, the alternative framework calls for intensified inter-country co-operation in the designing, implementation and monitoring of national programmes for adjustment with transformation. Finally, as emphasized in the Joint Statement of African Ministers of Economic Planning and Development and the Ministers of Finance, AAF- SAP should constitute a basis for constructive dialogue between African countries and their development partners in the implementation and financing of country programmes.
