Our Common Interest: Report of the Commission for Africa
(Please note: This is not a UN document)
“The Commission for Africa (CFA), brainchild of British premier Tony Blair, launched its long-awaited report on 11 March, urging increased aid to the continent, but stressing the need for African governments to do their bit too. The report, which was launched simultaneously in London and Addis Ababa, is an attempt to come out with sustainable and far-reaching solutions to tackle Africa's grinding poverty and governance issues, and put the continent back on the road to recovery.”
