A beta version of the much awaited African Views framework was launched on
June 15th, 2010. Please visit http://www.africanviews.org to assess the
framework. You will gain instant access to over 100 indicators including the
African Views indicator, which uses a factor of 100 current vital indicators
to create a unique index. The AVI (African Views Index) ranks each country’s
capacity to promote human development without prejudice based on race, creed
culture, religion or gender among its people. The index not only reflects
Africans experiences in every country but also provides indicators that
reflect the values of each country’s culture and society comparatively.
We generally believe that meaningful development can be achieved when
detailed information needed for articulating and evaluating policy
implementation originates from the source and properly documented. You may
also notice that many of our country pages are incomplete and unassigned.
This is why your input is needed right now. We call upon you to participate
in the African Views framework development.
Feel free to forward this email to any qualified scholar or colleagues you
think may be interested in contributing.
