The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) is a programme of the African Union adopted in 2001 in Lusaka, Zambia, aimed primarily at poverty alleviation and promotion of economic growth and sustainable development in Africa. As a consequence of the integration of NEPAD into the structures and processes of the African Union, the NEPAD Planning and Coordinating Agency (NPCA) has been established by the Decision of the 14th AU Assembly of February 2010 as the technical body of the African Union, in replacement of the NEPAD Secretariat.
The YPP focuses on three (3) key programme- components:
• Excellent communication skills
- Candidates must hold a minimum of a university degree in Economics, Statistics, Social Sciences or related technical field, while current enrolment or the completion of a post- graduate degree will be an added advantage.
- Candidates should have two (2) to five (5) years post-University qualifications.
Application Deadline: February 8th 2016
