Africa Progress Panel The Africa Progress Panel brings together a unique group of leaders under the chairmanship of Kofi Annan. The Panel monitors and promotes mutual accountability and shared responsibility for progress in Africa. Its three focus areas are economic and political governance, finance for sustainable development, and achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. The work of the Panel aims to track progress in these areas and draw attention to critical issues and opportunities.
Every year, the Panel, with support from the Secretariat, draws on the expertise of a wide range of institutions and actors to compile a concise overview of the progress Africa has made over the previous year. The 2011 report is divided into two sections. The first highlights progress as well as the main obstacles to it in seven areas, namely economic growth, governance, peace and security, social development, food and nutrition security, climate change, and development cooperation and finance. The second section looks at the year ahead and identifies key trends and obstacles. On that basis, the report provides a series of practical recommendations for policy makers to catalyze action and accelerate much-needed progress.
