Description of the Subject: The New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD).

The New Partnership for Africa's Development (African Union) is intended to address the actual defiance facing the African Countries. Topics managed by NEPAD are incrementing the poverty levels, underdevelopment, or the marginalisation of Africa.

For this reason, the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) proposes a radical intervention, guided by the African leaders, to develop a new vision that would guarantee the Renewal of Africa.

  3. Halt the marginalisation of Africa in the globalisation process and improve its economic integration into the regional and global economy
  4. Accelerate the empowerment of the African women

The principles of the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) are:

  1. Good governance as a basic requisite for the peace, security, and sustainable development
  2. Ownership and Leadership of Africa, deep participation by all segments of the African society
  3. Attaching the development of Africa on its resources and the African people
  4. Regional Partnership between the African peoples
  5. Acceleration of regional and African Integration
  6. Develop the competitiveness of the African economies
  7. Creating a new international partnership that changes the unequal relationship between Africa and the developed world
  8. Assuring that all partnerships with the NEPAD (New Partnership for Africa's Development) are linked to the Millennium Development Goals
