About the product
The report is prepared in response to General Assembly resolution A/74/301 requesting the Secretary-General to submit on an annual basis a comprehensive and action-oriented report on the implementation of the resolution, based on the provision of inputs from Governments, organizations of the United Nations system, and other stakeholders in the New Partnership for Africa’s Development. The present report, which was prepared by the Office of the Special Adviser on Africa (OSAA), reviews progress in the implementation of four key NEPAD’s priorities that are fundamental to the realization of the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development and the Africa Union Agenda 2063. These are regional integration; infrastructure development; industrialization; and health in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. In implementing its mandate, OSAA engages with a broad range of stakeholders, including Member States, the African Union Commission, African Union Development Agency (AUDA NEPAD), African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM), Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), civil society organizations, the private sector, academia, as well as women and youth groups.
