In 2001 NEPAD - the New Partnership for Africa's Development - was launched by
South African President Thabo Mbeke and Abdoulaye Wade, President of Senegal.
Its founding assumption was that African governments had to take much more
responsibility for their economic, political and social policy if real
development were to be achieved. AFRICA & DEVELOPMENT CHALLENGES IN THE NEW
MILLENNIUM is the first major attempt by African scholars and policy makers to
evaluate the meaning of NEPAD in concrete terms. The authors raise key
questions about NEPAD's ability to integrate Africa with the global economy,
to overcome the challenge of poverty, and to bring about regional development.
The book also addresses what NEPAD means for agriculture, industrialisation,
trade and the « digital divide ». This is an important contribution to our
understanding of NEPAD, why it has already run into extensive criticism, and
the prospects for a new, more positive chapter in Africa's development.
