  • The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) is a vision and strategic framework for Africa’s Renewal. The framework emanates from a mandate given to the five initiating Heads of State (Algeria, Egypt, Nigeria, Senegal and South Africa) by the Organization of African Unity (OAU) to develop an integrated socio-economic development framework for Africa.  The 37th Summit of the OAU in July 2001 formally adopted the strategic framework document.
