The Priority Africa intersectoral platform

The Priority Africa platform is intersectoral in that it includes all of the main lines of action that each programme sector, the institutes, centres and offices must implement as a priority in Africa.

In addition, the Priority Africa platform is interdisciplinary and cross-cutting. Regional in essence, it takes the unique character of national evelopment situations and levels into account and approaches the continent as a single entity with a view to strengthening the regional and subregional integration process in Africa. It thus plays a key role in driving forward support activities that contribute to integration.

During the 2008-2009 biennium, the platform’s strategies, bodies, working methods, scope and activities were established and gradually adapted. The platform’s operational phase will begin in 2010-2011.
