Gleneagles: Monitoring the Commitments
- The success of the G8 2005 'Gleneagles' commitments on
Africa will be measured by how well they are implemented.
- UK has taken the lead on making sure monitoring processes
are put in place at the international level, and to ensure
these work together effectively. We have also established
mechanisms at the national level, to ensure the UK is living up
to its own commitments.
At the international level:
- The Prime Minister announced in June 2006 the creation of
Progress Panel' to maintain pressure for implementation
of commitments, and to keep Africa high on the international
agenda hyperlink to Africa Progress Panel document
- The UK has also helped strengthen the Africa
Partnership Forum, tasked at Gleneagles to monitor
progress hyperlink to Africa Partnership Forum document,
including helping to establish and fund a Support Unit.
- The UK also supports the Archbishop of Cape Town's proposal
for an 'African Monitor', launched in May 2006 a network
of civil society groups aiming to track progress at grassroots
level of commitments made in Africa. DFID has provided £30,000
