Chapter Summary

In a Declaration on the Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa, the African Union (AU) appealed for support for Africa's infrastructure needs, calculated to require around $ 60 bn in the coming decade. An African Monetary Institute would be created to study policies for the establishment of a single continental currency and African Central Bank. The African Governance Outlook (AGO), a collaborative initiative between the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the African Capacity Building Foundation was piloted in phases in selected African countries based on accession to the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM). On a lower level, some African governments were again facing challenges from within African armies. The most consequential army mutiny took place in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in April, but had already been preceded by individual defections from the Congolese army.
