Improving the way governments run the political and economic affairs on the continent has been considered critical for improving people's lives in Africa.

This issue is under the spotlight at the United Nations this week which is being observed as Africa-NEPAD week from 21 to 25 October.

NEPAD, is the New Partnership for Africa's Development, adopted by African leaders in 2001 to promote development on the continent.

Two years later, the leaders also adopted the African Peer Review Mechanism, APRM whose tenth anniversary is also being observed during this Africa-NEPAD week.
