Seizing opportunities in times of goba change
The Africa Progress Pane (APP) consists of ten distinguished individuas from the private and pubic sector, who
advocate on global issues of importance to Africa and the world. Mr Ko Annan, former Secretar-General ofthe United Nations and Nobel laureate, chairs the APP and is closel involved in its da-to-da work.The Panel’s uniue convening power allows it to focus on complex and high-impact issues such as globalgovernance, peace and securit, climate change, food securit, sustainable economic development, andthe Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). While these problems have immediate ramications for Africa, their solutions reuire the coming together of a wide range of stakeholders within and outside Africa.The life experiences of Panel members give them a formidable abilit to access a wide and deep cross-sectionof societ. This means the are well placed to affect change on issues that reuire the engagement of multiplestakeholders. The Panel’s primar objective is to advocate for shared responsibilit between African leaders and
their internationa partners to ensure sustainabe and equitabe deveopment in Africa.
The Africa Progress Report is the Africa Progress Panel’s agship publication. Its purpose is to provide an overviewof the progress Africa has made over the previous ear. The report draws on the best research and analsis
avaiabe on Africa and compies it in a refreshing and provocative manner. Through the report, the Pane
recommends a series of polic choices and actions for African polic makers who have primar responsibilit for Africa’s progress, as well as vested international partners and civil societ organisations.
