Division for Africa Partnership

The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD)

The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) is designed to address the current challenges facing the African continent. Issues such as the escalating poverty levels, underdevelopment and the continued marginalisation of Africa needed a new radical intervention, spearheaded by African leaders, to develop a new Vision that would guarantee Africa’s Renewal.

African Union

The African Union is the fundamental institution and the principal organization of the continent in the field of the promotion of the accelerated socio-economic integration of the continent for the reinforcement of the unity and solidarity between the African countries and people.

The Treaty of Pelindaba

The African Nuclear Weapon Free Zone Treaty, also known as the Treaty of Pelindaba, establishes a Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone in Africa. Signature of the Treaty culminates a 32-year quest for a nuclear free Africa, beginning when the Organization of African Unity formally stated its desire for a Treaty ensuring the denuclearization of Africa at its first Summit in Cairo in July 1964.
