NEPAD - IPPF User Guide
The New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) has identified infrastructure as one of the major parameters for economic growth and poverty reduction in Africa. The present state of infrastructure as well as the infrastructure gap between Africa and more developed countries constitutes a serious handicap to African production and improved productivity and competitiveness. Without addressing its infrastructure needs, Africa will continue to remain uncompetitive in the global market. In June 2002, at the G8 Summit in Kananaskis, the Prime Minister of Canada announced Canadian commitments in support of the Africa Action Plan, the G8 response to (NEPAD), including initiatives related to infrastructure development.
