One Year After the G8 Gleneagles Summit: Implementation, African Development and the African Monitor

Archbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane of South AfricaArchbishop Njongonkulu Ndungane, the Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, South Africa, has created an independent non-government body, The African Monitor, which aims to monitor fulfillment of economic and social development projects, raise expectations and awareness of grass roots groups--including faith networks--and motivate groups to hold authorities accountable for results. One year following the G8 Gleneagles Summit, Archbishop Ndungane discussed The African Monitor's role in maintaining the momentum by the G8 summit for implementing development in Africa, and assessing if development promises are being kept.  Other speakers at the event included: Reverend John L. Peterson, Canon for Global Justice and Reconciliation, Washington National Cathedral; Katherine Marshall, Director and Counselor to the President, Development Dialogue on Values and Ethics, World Bank; and was moderated by Ruth Levine, Director of Programs and Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development.
