Two Publications Examine Relationship between G8 and Africa

June 9, 2010

The Data Report 2010: Monitoring  the G8 Promise to Africa, The One Campaign, May 2010

From the report: This year, ONE’s DATA Report concentrates on two tasks: Firstly, it offers a final verdict on whether the G8 have delivered on the historic promises made in Gleneagles. Secondly, it makes some recommendations which are based upon the successes and failures of the G8’s current set of commitments, the changing landscape both inside and outside the African continent, and the priorities of African partners. We hope these recommendations will feed into deliberations in advance of the G8/G20 Summit in Canada and the UN Summit on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in New York in September, where a review of the MDGs will take place and, ONE hopes, a renewed strategy and plan for their attainment, especially in Africa, will be agreed.

Our Common Strategic Interests: Africa’s Role in the Post-G8 World, Chatham House, June 2010

From the report: The global order is currently undergoing dramatic change of a kind not seen since the end of the Cold War. The  changing economic balance of power, hastened by the recent global financial crisis, raises questions regarding whether and how the G8 has supported African development objectives, and what impact the emergence of the G20 as the principal forum for global economic governance will have on African development and political objectives.
