New Partnership for Africa’s Development: progress in implementation and international support
At its fifty-seventh session, in 2002, the General Assembly adopted the United Nations Declaration on the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (resolution 57/2).
At its sixty-second session, the General Assembly recognized the progress made in the implementation of the New Partnership, while acknowledging that much needed to be done in its implementation, and requested the Secretary-General to submit a comprehensive report on the implementation of the resolution to the Assembly at its sixty-third session on the basis of inputs from Governments, organizations of the United Nations system and other stakeholders in the New Partnership (resolution 62/179).
The General Assembly decided that the high-level meeting on the theme “Africa’s development needs: state of implementation of various commitments, challenges and the way forward” would be held on 22 September 2008, and requested the Secretary-General to submit to the meeting a comprehensive report, with recommendations, on the theme in cooperation with relevant development agencies of the United Nations, the Bretton Woods institutions and other relevant regional and international financial and trade institutions (resolution 62/242).
