Introduction

NEPAD was presented to African leaders at the OAU Summit in Lusaka in July 2001, and endorsed by the Summit, in the form of declaration 1(XXXV11). NEPAD reflects the belief of all African leaders that they have the responsibility, together with the African peoples, to address the lack of development and growth on our continent, the pressing problems of poverty and social exclusion facing the majority of our population, and Africa’s increasing marginalisation from global markets for goods, services and capital.

The fundamental objective of NEPAD is to promote sustainable development on the African continent, in a manner that embodies social, economic and environmental dimensions. In particular, the main goal is to eradicate poverty by meeting the Millennium Development goals formulated at a series of United Nations summits and conference. This is a necessary condition for placing each African country, and the continent as a whole, on a path of sustainable growth and development, and to also halt the marginalisation of Africa in the globalisation process.

This summary report of the initial action plan is the first step taken to elaborate the implementation of NEPAD programmes and seeks to build on the NEPAD framework document adopted by the OAU Heads of State and Government Summit in Lusaka, Zambia in July 2001. Other areas of priorities not covered in this initial plan will be elaborated as this plan is implemented and refined.
