Evolution of the cpa

Evolution of the CPA

  • Consolidates science and technology programmes of the AU

  • Guiding policy document for STI in Africa

  • Re-affirms commitment to collective action in developing S&T for meeting development needs

  • Articulates Africa’s common objective of socio-economic transformation and full integration into the world economy


Evolution of the cpa1

Evolution of the CPA

  • Participatory

    • Evolved from a consultative process

    • Multi-sectoral stakeholder meetings and conferences at continental and regional level from 2003 to 2005

  • Approved by the AMCOST in 2005

  • Endorsed by the AU summit in 2005


Pillars of the cpa

Pillars of the CPA

  • Built upon three interrelated conceptual pillars of:

    • capacity building

    • knowledge production, and

    • technological innovation


Components of the cpa

Components of the CPA

  • Flagship research and development programmes

  • Improving policy conditions and building innovation mechanisms

  • Implementation, funding and governance


Implementation arrangements

Implementation arrangements

  • Implementation at different levels

    • Continental Programmes

    • Sub-Regional Programme

    • National Programmes


Implementation progress

Implementation Progress

  • Promotion of innovation

    • Establishment of biosciences, mathematical sciences, water sciences, lesser technology … centers of excellence

    • Regional R&D flagship programmes have been implemented through the COE with some showing promising results

    • Training of African young scientists through COE and African Universities

    • Implementation of the book of light house projects (call for research grants currently running)

    • Establishment of the Pan-African University


Implementation progress1

Implementation Progress

  • Improving policy conditions and building innovation mechanisms

    • The publication of the first Africa Innovation Outlook through ASTII with MS taking a lead

    • The Establishment of the Africa Science, Technology and Innovation Observatory following the 2009 AU summit decision

    • Support provided to MS in the development of S&T policies /plans (through UNESCO)


Why should the cpa be reviewed

Why should the CPA be reviewed?

  • The CPA outlines the initial timeframe for project implementation

  • Need for reflection before moving further into the second phase of implementation

    • Taking on board emerging challenges e.g. environmental and climate change and its implications on Africa’s population – health, food security …

    • Emerging technologies – acquisition of technologies to meet economic growth needs

    • Technology transfer

    • Technology waste management – implications on the environment


Why should the cpa be reviewed1

Why should the CPA be reviewed?

  • Review critical for reflection on

    • Achievements

    • Approach: Multi-sectoral? Private sector, universities

    • How are we moving through the innovation cycle?

  • Drawing lessons and applying them in improving the future: Things we could have done better

  • Other models that have worked else where


Why should the cpa be reviewed2

Why should the CPA be reviewed?

  • Alignment of the CPA to other sectoral policy framework

    • Ensuring value addition and complementarities

    • Frameworks developed at the same time, silent of each other

  • STI is cross-cutting

    • It’s contribution to the other frameworks to be clearly defined for achieving development goals
