We invite you to explore this newly redesigned site for the Africa Portal. It marks the first major change to the site since it was launched in November 2010 and is the result of suggestions received from our users and content partners. We trust that this redesign will assist in meeting the objective of the Africa Portal, namely to broaden the availability, accessibility and use of policy research on issues critical to the future of Africa.
