2017 NEPAD Annual Report
The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) Agency, now with a footprint in 52 out of the 55 African Union Member States, adopted a results-based approach and aligned its interventions to the First Ten Year Implementation Plan of Agenda 2063. Accordingly, the 2017 Annual Report is an account of the NEPAD Agency’s contribution to Agenda 2063.
In addition to presenting WHAT was achieved and WHERE, deliberate efforts to foster learning are made by providing detail on the context and HOW the results were realised. The report also highlights some results that contribute to development effectiveness and organisational efficiency.
The results of the NEPAD Agency’s contribution to Agenda 2063 for the year 2017 are presented at continental, regional and national levels. They are organised around fi ve major outcome areas: a) Skills Revolution and Entrepreneurship; b) Sustainability and Resilience; c) Improved Health and Nutrition Services; d) Transformed Agriculture and Food Systems; and e) Integrated Corridor Infrastructure, Trade and Markets.
The year 2017 marks the end of the strategic plan cycle that spans 2014 to 2017. It also heralds the medium term development plan, 2018 – 2023, aligned to Agenda 2063’s First Ten Year Implementation Plan.
The annual report also comes at a time when preparations are concluding for transforming the NEPAD Agency into the African Union Development Agency, with greater scope for action and capacity. To this end, this report provides some insights into the possible strategic impact areas of the transformed Agency, namely: Wealth Creation, Shared Prosperity, Transformative Capacities and Sustainable Environment.
