He coordinates the preparation of Africa MDG reports, the MDGs Acceleration Framework for Africa and the coordination of MDG-related activities in 46 African countries. He also coordinates the Post-2015 development agenda in RBA in partnership with the  African Union, the Economic Commission of Africa and the African Development Bank.

It is important to remember that the so-called “New Africa” is made up of 54 countries in five regions. Africa is not a single monolithic whole. The only safe generalisation is that Africa is planning, managing and starting to finance its own destiny.
