CEB: Strengthening system-wide support for Africa and the New Partnership for Africa’s Development 15.06.2016

Since 2001, CEB has continued to give high priority to engendering and extending effective and coordinated support for the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD). Its main objective has been to provide policy guidance to ensure that United Nations system support for NEPAD remains responsive to the needs of Africa. During 2004, the High-Level Committee on Programmes, on behalf of CEB, undertook an in-depth examination of the system’s support for NEPAD in the broad context of the implementation of the Millennium Declaration.

CEB: Introduction 15.06.2016

Since 2001, the United Nations System Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB) has built its policy agenda around the themes identified in the Secretary-General’s first report on the implementation of the Millennium Declaration (A/56/326). In that report, the Secretary-General set out a broad road map for the follow-up process and proposed two topics on which the process might focus each year, leading to a comprehensive review of the implementation of the Declaration in 2005.

Board considerations focused on the need for clarity with respect to the various initiatives in the United Nations system on Africa. The Board was of the view that the approach the system was taking should be articulated clearly to Member States and to African Governments in particular.

CEB: Programme issues 15.06.2016

While Chief Executives Board considered a number of substantive programme issues during the reporting period, the issues of climate change and support to development in Africa featured high on the Board’s agenda.
