4 WHAT IS NEPAD? It is a holistic, comprehensive integrated strategic framework for the socio-economic development of Africa. The NEPAD document provides the vision for Africa, a statement of the problems facing the continent and a programme of action to resolve these problems in order to reach the vision. It is a comprehensive integrated development plan that addresses key social, economic and political priorities in a coherent and balanced manner. It is a plan that has been conceived and developed by African leaders. It is a commitment that African leaders are making to African people and to the international community, to place Africa on a path of sustainable growth. It is a commitment African leaders are making to accelerate the integration of the African continent into the global economy. It is a framework for a new partnership with the rest of the world. It is a call to the rest of the world to partner Africa in her own development on the basis of her own agenda and programme of action.
