Extra support for training 20,000 African peace-keeping troops.
Improving the effectiveness of transfer controls over small arms.
Support to the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) to encourage African countries to improve governance.
Increased support to the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative to prevent corruption.
Early ratification of the UN Convention on Corruption and return of stolen assets.
Action to reduce bribery by the private sector by rigorously enforcing laws against the bribery of foreign public officials.
Ensuring that by 2015 all children have access to free primary education of good quality and have access to basic health care (free wherever countries choose to provide this).
Commitment that every country will have the resources necessary to implement sustainable education strategies if they have one.
Aim to get as close as possible to universal access to treatment for all those who need it by 2010.
Eradicate polio and keep it eradicated through continuing or increasing our own contributions toward the $829 million needed to achieve this. UK pledged £60m towards this yesterday to complete the eradication of polio this year.
Work with African countries to scale up action against malaria to reach 85% of the vulnerable populations with the key interventions that will save 600,000 children's lives a year by 2015.
Support increased market access, credible timetable to end export subsidies, and improve capacity to trade.
Establish an international infrastructure consortium involving G8 countries, the EU, the AU, NEPAD, World Bank and African Development Bank (AfDB) to mobilise additional investment in the infrastructure which Africa needs to support business and trade.
Agreed an extra $25 billion a year for Africa, more than doubling aid by 2010.
Agreed around $50 billion for all developing countries a year by 2010, compared to 2004. Will start to rise immediately.
Confirmed the cancellation of 100% of outstanding debts of eligible Heavily Indebted Poor Countries to IMF, IDA and African Development Fund.
Agreed that developing countries themselves and their governments should take the lead on development. They need to decide, plan and sequence their economic policies to fit with their own development strategies, for which they should be accountable to all their people.
We agreed to work with Africa to strengthen implementation and monitoring of both G8 and African commitments, through a reinforced Africa Partners Forum.
A working group will consider the implementation of innovative financing mechanisms including the IFF, IFFIm, and a levy on plane tickets.
