Abstract:Africa's new generation of enlightened leaders have promulgated an initiative to spur growth and reduce poverty on the continent. Entitled the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD), it is couched within five core principles - good governance; entrenchment of democracy, peace and security; sound economic policymaking and execution; productive partnerships; and domestic ownership and leadership - which are seen as the preconditions for Africa's renewal. This article analytically describes and assesses the NEPAD initiative, and the challenges to be confronted for its successful implementation as the road map guiding the journey to make the twenty-first century one of peace, democracy, development, and prosperity for Africa. These challenges include the need to beware of bureaucracy and institutional infighting; working out how to deal with the demands from the participating countries; the need for capacitybuilding; and the requirement to utilize, or capitalize on, the processes that are in place to reduce poverty.
