Africa Renewal

The Africa Renewal magazine examines the many issues that confront the people of Africa, its leaders and its international partners: sustainable development goals, economic reform, debt, education, health, women's empowerment, conflict and civil strife, democratization, investment, trade, regional integration and many other topics. It tracks policy debates. It provides expert analysis and on-the-spot reporting to show how those policies affect people on the ground. And, it highlights the views of policy-makers, non-governmental leaders and others actively involved in efforts to transform Africa and improve its prospects in the world today. The magazine also reports on and examines the many different aspects of the United Nations’ involvement in Africa, especially within the framework of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD).

‘In 10 years, NEPAD has achieved a lot’ - Interview: Ibrahim Mayaki, CEO of the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency

In July 2001, African leaders adopted the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD), the road map for the continent’s development. The following year a resolution of the UN General Assembly supported NEPAD as the main channel for UN assistance to Africa. More recently, in January 2010, the NEPAD structures were fully integrated into the African Union as the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency. Since its adoption a decade ago, how much has the plan achieved? In a frank, plain-talking interview, Ibrahim Assane Mayaki, the chief executive officer of the NEPAD Agency, responded to Africa Renewal’s André-Michel Essoungou.
