oa Journal of Development Perspectives - The management and control of the new partnership for Africa s development (NEPAD)



This paper investigates the effectiveness of the management and control of the NEPAD strategy. Mere cooperation has been replaced by mutually binding commitments or partnerships. This and the global agenda are used to establish a mutually beneficial partnership with the developed world to identify a niche and to achieve its aims. This article concludes that the disadvantages of NEPAD outweigh the advantages. The SMME example shows that the NEPAD policy is too general to address specific problems. Africa faces capacity constraints in many fields and no real effort has been made to prioritise the challenges. It is also not clear what NEPAD can do independently of the AU.
