The Africa Partnership Forum (APF) was established in 2003 following the G8 Summit in Evian, as a way of extending existing dialogue between G8 countries and New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) to include Africa’s major bilateral and multilateral development partners. In 2005 APF members agreed to establish an OECD-hosted support unit to backstop ongoing monitoring and analytical work. The APF is a senior political forum for discussing and monitoring policy issues, strategies, priorities and commitments related to Africa’s development and the implementation of NEPAD programmes, in the wider context of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The APF monitors commitments and tracks progress. Its members include all African NEPAD members plus key African institutions and other major development partners, which work together as equals in the Forum and ensure synergies and coherence with other international fora.
