The new partnership for Africa’s Development(NEPAD) was ratifies by the African Union (AU) in 2002 to address the development problems of Africa using a new paradigm development by Africans and that uses African resources. NEPAD is a development philosophy as well as a development program with set objectives and specific policy actions and projects for implementation across Africa. Its main objectives are to eradicate poverty, put Africa on a sustainable path, halt Africa’s marginalization and empower African women. As this report is intended to spark discussion among the various stakeholders, it asks more questions than it gives answers as the aim is to imitate a broader dialogue on the particular form and structure that NEPAD should take, reviews progress, challenges and constraints, and recommends measures to address these challenges.
