NEPAD at the World Economic Forum on Africa | Africa Platform for Development Effectiveness

NEPAD at the World Economic Forum on Africa | Africa Platform for Development Effectiveness | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
African heads of state and government, global business, government and academic leaders have converged on Cape Town this week to focus on driving Africa's economic growth, boosting intra-African trade, strategic infrastructure and agricultural-led development, as part of the 23rd World Economic Forum on Africa Meeting. NEPAD Agency CEO Dr Ibrahim Mayaki has been engaged from May 6 to 9 in high-level meetings to promote investment in infrastructure and agriculture, in support for the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa (PIDA) and Comprehensive Africa Agriculture Development Programme (CAADP).

On Tuesday, a high-level Summit on Africa’s infrastructure development discussed how the AU and NEPAD can maximise domestic resource mobilisation through the private sector.

AU Chairperson Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma emphasised the AU’s strong interest in mobilising more African capital to invest in African infrastructure, so as to close the continent’s infrastructure investment gap. It is for this reason that an infrastructure task team was set-up led by NEPAD CEO Dr Ibrahim Mayaki to deal with the issue of “improved regional integration, intra-African investment and finding alternative resource for infrastructure development funding”, Dr Dlamini-Zuma said.

The Forum called on support from all sectors for important initiatives such as PIDA. Dr Mayaki emphasised that PIDA has made a huge impact on the continent in driving regional integration and economic growth through the fifty-one priority programmes and projects. “Eighty-five per cent of infrastructure funding has been public. In order to fill this gap, we have to open ourselves to Public Private Partnerships. The implementation, however, is mainly a political issue. If you have political leadership, you also increase the effective implementation of PIDA projects,” said Dr Mayaki.

African Heads of State and Government, eminent persons and leaders of business gathered at the two-day Grow Africa Investment Forum on Wednesday and Thursday, to increase private-sector investment and financing for CAADP. Grow Africa is a joint partnership of the AUC, NEPAD Agency and the WEF.

Dr Mayaki said that “CAADP provides key national level systems and capacity. This should be the scope within to advance enhanced private sector financing for CAADP.” Dr Mayaki also acknowledged that the Grow Africa countries have made agricultural transformation a priority. “It is encouraging to see companies respond concretely and apply their knowledge, finance and market access in a way that will drive Africa's development”, he said.

With 2014 being Africa’s Year of Agriculture and Food Security, AU Chairperson Dr Dlamini-Zuma called on the private sector to play a vital role in fulfilling the dream of a prosperous and peaceful continent, through increased investment in agriculture.

Heads of State of Nigeria, Benin, Malawi and Ghana as well as government ministers reported on the progress to date and opportunities in the eight Grow Africa member countries; namely Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda and Tanzania. President of Benin Yayi Boni, said that his country’s economy has amplified because of CAADP, and the allocation of 10 per cent of its national budget to agriculture.

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan reiterated Nigeria’s commitment to increase food production and create jobs through technology uptake, processing, strengthening value chains from farm to fork and developing an enabling environment for private-sector investment.

Malawian President Joyce Banda said Malawi is prioritising private-sector investment into agriculture, so as to empower women and small-holder farmers. Further investment was needed to support successful national programmes such as the fertiliser production programme to increase food production and uplift Malawians out of poverty.

Robert Mugabe shrugs off concern about new African role

Robert Mugabe shrugs off concern about new African role | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
The new African Union chairman says he is not worried about what the West will think of his appointment.

8B Punch's curator insight, February 4, 8:03 AM

Scoop #1

The article "Robert Mugabe Shrugs Off Concern About New African Role", is about the new African Union chairman who is none other than Robert Mugabe. Mugabe has had lots of trouble (including a travel ban) with the West (Europe and America) due to his political violence and intimidation. So once he was appointed the new chairman, the West were worried. However, Mugabe is admired and respected by many people in Africa, mainly because he is Africa's former liberation war hero and third-longest server. He hopes to raise the standard of living for his people and to raise the sanction his country is in. Furthermore, he expresses his ideas about the empowerment of women in Africa, saying men and women are equal.

 

This article helps me understand the strain in the relationship between the West and Africa. It really relates to what we are learning about now and how before, Africa and Europe had a trading relationship, but then Europe got greedy and everything turned bitter. In this case, Africa has appointed Robert Mugabe as the new African Union chairman. Robert Mugabe is not trusted by the West so the relationship between Africa and the West would be full of mistrust and doubt. In both cases, there was something that made things go wrong. My personal opinion on this is kind off neutral. Since I don't really know about Mugabe, I can't really judge. But if his people admire him deeply then he must have done something right. I think the whole mistrust and politics thing is unnecessary. If they just dropped it and started over, things would be so much more simple. I also especially liked  what Mugabe said about how there were things men can do that women can't, and things women can do that men can't. It really showed how we need men and women to balance things out.

8A Ye Rim Park's curator insight, February 5, 4:15 PM

The article is about Robert Mugabe, the oldest president of Zimbabwe, who has concerns that his appointment as new African Union chairman would badly affect relations between the pan-African bloc and the West. Robert Mugabe said that he doesn't care what West says, and that his business was to ensure the decisions they take are implemented.

This article helps me to understand Africa because Robert Mugabe is quite an influential person in Africa, which gives me lots of clues of Africa while learning about him

I think that Robert Mugabe is a great president, even though he is old I think he still has great discernment. I am really surprised that Robert Mugabe was 90, my grandfather is about 75 years old and can't really do anything because of his age.


 

Fanny Kay's curator insight, February 5, 9:59 PM

WHO: Robert Mugabe, new chairman of the African Union


WHEN / WHERE: February 1st 2015


WHY: This article is quite factual, simply reporting the sayings of the new chairman. He expresses views concerning international diplomacy, notably with 'the West', so Europe and America which shows a desire for independence and a resentment for the tone adopted by the West, that tires to "control (Africans) and control (African) ways", according to him. 


WHAT: The report commences with Mugabe's statement regarding foreign judgment. He makes it clear that he cares not of it, and that unless the West is prepared to treat the African continent as an equal with whom they cooperate, instead of someone inferior who they could "control", then they and their opinion would not be welcomed.It is later noted how the hostility between the chairman and the West further expresses himself, such as for example travel bans to the US and the EU. Finally, Mugabe discusses equality of the sexes in Zimbabwe with questionable political correctness, saying with pride how far female empowerment has come in the work place. This article lacks comments and interpretations of facts, though the factual information it does give lets the reader more or less weave an interpretation of their own.

On the fifteenth report of the Committee of Ten Heads of State and Government on the Reform of the United Nations Security Council

The Assembly reiterated its call for Africa to continue to speak with one voice and cohesively on all issues relating to the United Nations Security Council reform and related matters; and underscored the overriding need to ensure that the interest of Africa continues to be maintained and safeguarded at all times in the on-going Intergovernmental Negotiation on Security Council reform.
