The Africa Progress Report 2010, launched on 25 May 2010 in Johannesburg by the Africa Progress Panel (APP), states that African leaders need to boost “political determination and capacity to use what revenues they have to achieve results for people”.

Kofi Annan, Chair of the Panel and fellow Panel members Linah Mohohlo, Peter Eigen and Olusegun Obasanjo presented the Africa Progress Report on Africa Day – five years since the establishment of the Panel and 10 years since world leaders signed up to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Project Partners

The following organisations are coordinating, supporting and implementing the face-to-face and e-consultations.

African Monitor

African Monitor is a Pan-African organisation which was established in 2006, following the so called ‘year of Africa’ in 2005, when donors promised to increase aid to the continent. Its mission is to be an independent catalyst to monitor development funding commitments, delivery and impact on the grassroots, and to bring strong additional African voices to the development agenda.


2010 marks an important year for Africa. Most key commitments for the continent’s development expire in 2010, including the Gleneagles commitments to double aid by 2010, the European Union - Africa partnership which includes commitments to increase aid to developing countries including Africa, and the 2010 targets for making aid effective as contained in the Paris Declaration.

Millennium Development Goals Report 2009

The Millennium Development Goals Report 2009 is based on a master set of data that has been compiled by an Inter-Agency and Expert Group on MDG Indicators led by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat, in response to the wishes of the General Assembly for periodic assessment of progress towards the MDGs.
