NEPAD, or the New Partnership for Africa’s Development, is the result of a fusion between Senegal’s Omega Plan, the economic part of which had the objective of closing the gap between our countries and the developed world, and the Millennium African Plan, or MAP, drawn up by President Mbeki of South Africa, President Obasanjo of Nigeria, and President Bouteflika of Algeria, later joined by President Mubarak of Egypt. The two plans were merged into a single one and adopted by the Lusaka summit in 2001 to become the vision of Africa and its strategy for reaching world level by mobilizing domestic and external resources, in partnership with the developed world.
