An expert group meeting on the role of the private sector and civil society organizations in the implementation of NEPAD programs and projects is underway in Addis Ababa to identify challenges hindering the process. The Head of the NEPAD Support Section at the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), challenged the team to clearly “articulate policy measures to accelerate their involvement in NEPAD implementation at regional, sub regional and national levels”. Reliable sources reveal that studies on the integration of the development framework into the African Union structures are in their final stages and the process could begin as early as July this year, if African leaders adopt the proposals now being formulated during their next summit at around the same time.
