With the Davos, World Economic Forum opening in Switzerland next week BBC News Online has produced an article which considers the progress that has been made since the G8 nations signed up to an Action Plan for African Development in support of the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD)...

"Africa is supposed to be a priority for the leading rich nations. At last year's G8 summit a new Action Plan for Africa was set out, and Africa's problems have featured in G8 discussions for many years. But what progress has really been made?"

A good and timely question...

See Jubilee Research for a thorough assessment of debt issues, Oxfam for an assessment of related trade issues and the Inter-Church Coalition on Africa for a critique of the NEPAD proposals.
