This prospectus covers some of Africa's most critical development challenges and opportunities: designing and implementing economic and social policies to alleviate poverty; expanding inter-regional trade and integrating Africa into the world economy; enhancing the capacity of the state for development and promoting a prominent role for the private sector; strengthening civil society organizations for development and peace; promoting gender equity; and promoting policies that expedite the use of information technology in Africa's development. The various proposals for partnership appear in part II. They verify what ECA is promising: serious renewal, effective consultation with partners, a dearly defined course, a commitment to selectivity, and expert management. ECA believes that the services and products described in the proposals are well within the capability of ECA and partners to deliver.
