Assessing regional integration in Africa II : rationalizing regional economic communities by United Nations( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines the effectiveness of Africa's regional economic communities in pushing forward the regional integration agenda towards the objectives of the Abuja Treaty establishing the African Economic Community. A fully functioning African Economic Community would remove all barriers to movement of people, goods and services across the continent, thereby creating a single economic space. The report examines the critical role that institutions in general can play in achieving policy objectives, and the specific role that African institutions perform. The analysis focuses on the regional economic communities, which have been designated by the African Union as the building blocks for achieving the African Economic Community.--Publisher's description

Scoring African leadership for better health by United Nations( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the African Summit on HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Other Related Infectious Diseases in Abuja, Nigeria in 2001, African leaders requested the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) Secretariat, in collaboration with UN agencies, to monitor progress toward implementation of the Declarations made there. Four organizations have undertaken this task: the African Union (and formerly, the OAU), the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), and the World Health Organization (WHO). Scoring African Leadership for Better Health is the result of this collaborative assessment of the Abuja commitments and beyond. It evaluates progress on Declarations for the period 2001-2003, emphasizes best country practices, and highlights lessons learnt

African women's report 2009 : measuring gender inequality in Africa : experiences and lessons from the African Gender and Development Index by United Nations( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication is based on the results of piloting the African Gender and Development Index (AGDI) in 12 African countries across the five subregions of the continent. Making a case for countries to invest in sex disaggregated data collection, the outcomes provide an indication of the general situation of women across the continent. The result of the AGDI trials demonstrate that countries have shown commitment to international, regional and subregional treaties affecting women through overwhelming ratification. The report confirms existing MDG status reports which indicate remarkable progress being made with respect to MDG2 on universal Access to Basic Education. With the aid of systematic collection of sex aggregated data, the report calls for enhanced commitment towards accelerated implementation of gender equality as outlined in frameworks such as the ICPD+15, Beijing+15, the Convention of the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women and the African Women's Protocol.--Publisher's description
African governance report III 2013( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The African Governance Report, the most comprehensive report on governance in Africa, assesses and monitors the progress of African countries on governance, identifies capacity gaps in governance institutions and proposes policies and strategic interventions to improve governance on the continent. This third edition of the Report, while continuing to monitor governance trends, adopts a thematic approach: elections and the management of diversity in Africa. Elections are central to democratic governance and the political management of diversity in plural societies. While elections are held with greater regularity in Africa, their content and quality remains suspect in many countries, with Africa's rich diversity deployed as a combustive tool in electoral conflicts. Elections have often triggered conflict, with violence, tensions, acrimonies and sharp elite divisions surrounding electoral processes and outcomes-- a worrying trend for Africa's democratic future. The Report investigates elections in the face of managing diversity in Africa. It recommends major electoral, institutional, political and constitutional reforms to enable elections to facilitate the democratic management of diversity, while significantly improving their quality and credibility. These include reform of the party system to make it more inclusive and democratic, a move to more proportional electoral systems, and an increase in the autonomy and effectiveness of election management boards. The Report argues that regional and subregional initiatives and frameworks for elections, democracy and governance have to be implemented and monitored to improve electoral performance and promote democratic consolidation and stability."--Page 4 of cover
Environmental performance reviews by United Nations( Book )

Enhancing the climate resilience of Africa's infrastructure : the power and water sectors by Raffaello Cervigni( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book evaluates-using for the first time a single consistent methodology and the state-of-the-arte climate scenarios-, the impacts of climate change on hydro-power and irrigation expansion plans in Africa's main rivers basins (Niger, Senegal, Volta, Congo, Nile, Zambezi, Orange); and outlines an approach to reduce climate risks through suitable adjustments to the planning and design process. The book finds that failure to integrate climate change in the planning and design of power and water infrastructure could entail, in scenarios of drying climate conditions, losses of hydropower revenues between 5% and 60% (depending on the basin); and increases in consumer expenditure for energy up to 3 times the corresponding baseline values. In in wet climate scenarios, business-as-usual infrastructure development could lead to foregone revenues in the range of 15% to 130% of the baseline, to the extent that the larger volume of precipitation is not used to expand the production of hydropower. Despite the large uncertainty on whether drier or wetter conditions will prevail in the future in Africa, the book finds that by modifying existing investment plans to explicitly handle the risk of large climate swings, can cut in half or more the cost that would accrue by building infrastructure on the basis of the climate of the past"--Résumé de l'éditeur
Harmonizing policies to transform the trading environment : assessing regional integration in Africa VI by United Nations( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In support of progress towards regional integration in Africa, the Economic Commission for Africa, African Union Commission and African Development Bank jointly produce Assessing Regional Integration in Africa (ARIA). The first edition (ARIA I), published in 2004, provided a comprehensive assessment of the status of regional integration in Africa, with subsequent editions focusing on thematic areas. Thus ARIA II examined the rationalization of regional economic communities and their overlapping memberships. ARIA III addressed macroeconomic policy convergence, as well as monetary and financial integration in the regional economic communities. ARIA IV focused on enhancing intra-African trade. ARIA V provided analytical research and empirical evidence to support the establishment of the Continental Free Trade Area and the benefits that African countries stand to gain from it. ARIA VI, "Harmonizing policies to transform the trading environment", carries forward the momentum of January 2012's decision and declaration by addressing the issue of harmonizing rules of origin and trade facilitation to ease Continental Free Trade Area negotiations by member States. The report starts with a brief overview of progress in regional integration, followed by discussions on the harmonization of three key prerequisites to pave the way for a meaningful continental market - rules of origin, trade facilitation instruments and cross-border linkages for information and communications technology
