  1. I would like to thank the Heads of State and Government for the confidence you have shown in me by giving me an opportunity to serve as the Chief Executive of the NEPAD Secretariat. Through your efforts in the past four years, a solid foundation has been built for the successful implementation of NEPAD, particularly in creating a conducive environment for sustained development. Your continued efforts in peace building and conflict resolution have contributed to create the necessary conditions for Africa’s development. We have witnessed the successful resolution of conflict in Cфte d’Ivoire, ongoing efforts in Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and successful elections in Tanzania, Liberia and Burundi. In programme implementation, progress has been made in moving NEPAD from a concept, to policy development and initial implementation of NEPAD programmes is witnessed in many countries. During this period, a number of lessons have been learnt regarding Africa’s development challenges. Some of these lessons include the need to:

    1. enhance institutional capacity for effective and efficient programme conceptualisation, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation;
    2. integrate NEPAD priorities, values and principles into national development plans;
    3. reinforce partnerships, within Africa, and with Africa’s development partners;
    4. harness and generate domestic financial and human resources for development;

  2. These lessons inform our strategies to accelerate the implementation of NEPAD.

  3. This report covers the period April-December 2005, and highlights progress being made in addressing some of the issues outlined above.
