Summary of NEPAD Action Plans
NEPAD has been conceived by African Heads of State as a development framework that will do precisely these things, hence the emphasis on partnership. It is based on the realisation that Africa has offered and continues to offer much to the world and humanity, and the rest of the world owes it a duty to respond to its present situation. NEPAD is about uniting the continent as an economic and trading bloc and increasing its competitiveness. It is about changing the current global market and financial architecture. It recognises that that to do so, Africa must first put its house in order and all African countries must work together toward common goals and objectives. NEPAD brings not just a message of hope, but concrete actions and programmes to realise the hope.
