A Marshall Plan with Africa
Comment on our draft and help us to make it even better!
We need a paradigm shift; we have to realise that Africa is not the continent of cheap commodities but that the people of Africa need infrastructure and a future.
With the publication of the 'Cornerstones of a Marshall Plan with Africa', the Federal Development Ministry has kicked off a discussion about what its cooperation with Africa should look like in the future. The African partner countries with which Germany is engaged in development cooperation, as well as the private sector and academia, the churches, society and policymakers, are all invited to discuss the ideas and solutions proposed in the Marshall Plan and to help develop them further.
Use this opportunity to contribute your ideas to the plan. We invite anyone interested in this topic to post their own ideas and experiences on our online discussion platform by no later than 26 February 2017. We look forward to engaging in a constructive dialogue with you.
