Good governance is essential for transforming Africa's economy. Indeed, it is one of the key pillars of the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD). In the past decade, the transition of many states from authoritarian regimes co pluralistic and democratic systems has created demands from citizens for effective, participatory governance structures and services. The forum will present an opportunity for all participants to gain a deeper understanding of the dimensions of governance, address key challenges, coordinate existing initiatives, and develop plans for the implementation and monitoring of good governance. The program of work is structured to ensure maximum discussion and feedback about strategies and recommendations from eight focus groups: HIV/AIDS, ICTs, Media, Parliamentarians, the Private Sector, Traditional Governance, Gender and Youth. In addition, the civil society and academia thematic groups will provide overarching crosscutting inputs to the forum. Heads of state and government from each sub-region of the continent will also have the opportunity to share their visions and plans directly with the citizenry in an interactive session.
