The newly appointed Chief Executive Officer of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) has revealed that studies on the integration of the development framework into the African Union structures shall be completed by the end of April 2009. Dr. Ibrahim Assane Mayaki made the revelation in Addis Ababa Friday during a meeting with members of the UN Regional Coordination Mechanism (RCM) and Cluster coordinators. Addressing the concerns of some cluster members as to the integration of NEPAD into the structures and processes of the African Union (AU), Mr. Mayaki explained that the analysis of the studies and the proposals for the way forward would be tabled for further discussion by African Union. He explained that the integration process would mainly be at the managerial level, entailing the harmonization of norms and procedures such as human resources and finance.
