Overview of APRM
The African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) was established in 2003 as a self-monitoring initiative to promote good governance in Africa and has contributed to the attainment of the goals of NEPAD and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It is a mutually agreed instrument voluntary acceded to by African Union (AU) Member States with the aim of fostering the adoption of policies, standards and practices leading to political stability, high economic growth, sustainable development and accelerated regional and economic integration.
African Peer Review Mechanism
Strengthening good governance in Africa is consistent with ECA’s overall mission of providing tangible support to Member States. ECA has a strong track record in providing strong support for improving governance across the continent as exemplified by its various activities and efforts geared toward good governance, including its strong support for the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM).
A group of African Civil society organisations have protested the decision by Kenya to postpone this year's African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM)'s extraordinary Summit which was due to be held in Nairobi this week. Over the weekend, a statement from Kenya's Presidential Spokesman Manoah Esipisu said the meeting had been moved to Ethiopia in January on the sidelines of the African Union Summit. Civil Society says the summit's timing was crucial to address challenges facing governance issues facing continent and the APRM. Published on 10 Sep 2015
