New World Bank Africa strategy in the works
News||17 June 2010|update 71|
The World Bank's 2005 Africa Action Plan (AAP) is up for review and the Bank is rolling out consultations. Phase one consultations will extend through June, and will take place in a number of cities in Africa. A draft strategy will be unveiled in August with phase two consultations extending through October. The AAP consultation note argues that "Africa's fundamental problem [is] weak governance and public-sector capacity," but makes no reference to the contributions many have argued the IFIs made to this through their structural adjustment programmes of the 1980s and 1990s (see Update 62).
