Africa and devolopment challenges in the new millennium: the NEPAD debate

Front Cover
This book is the first major attempt by Africa's own scholarly and research community to explore the meaning of NEPAD (New Partnership for Africa's Development) and its potential for moving beyond mere political rhetoric to real policies. Key questions are raised around NEPAD's consistency with the market-oriented nature of the globalized world economy, poverty, gender and regional development within the African continent. Contributors examine what NEPAD means for particular sectors, including agriculture, industrialization, trade, and the socalled digital divide. And in a concluding section, the thorny issues relating to the financing of Africa's development in the years to come are raised.
