Rationale and Introduction


The aim of NEPAD is to promote accelerated growth and sustainable development, to eradicate widespread and severe poverty and to halt the marginalisation of Africa in the globalisation process.
Therefor it has been recognised that a healthy and productive environment is a prerequisite for the New Partnership for Africa’s Development. 

Afrifirenet is a contribution to the NEPAD environmental programme.
