Description - Africa and Development Challenges in the New Millennium by J. O. Adesina
The New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) was launched in late 2001 by Presidents Thabo Mbeki of South Africa and Abdoulaye Wade of Senegal. Its founding assumptions were that African governments had to be much more self-critical of their own performance, and to take more responsibility for their own policies. On this basis, a new, more fruitful relationship with the West was to be built. This book is the first significant attempt by Africa's own scholarly community to unpack NEPAD and evaluate its practical potential. It raises key questions about the market economy, poverty, gender and regional development, and examines NEPAD's implications for agriculture, industrialization, trade, the digital divide, and the financing of future development.
