Abstract: The 2006-2007 version of Monitoring SADC has focused primarily on Overlapping membership within southern Africa, both in both in the context of regional integration blocks and within the framework of the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) that are being negotiated between the European Union and various groups of countries in the region. The aim is to outline the implications of these overlaps, and to propose solutions to address the problem. Regular issues covered by the Monitoring SADC report include: the assessment of developmebnt; the effectiveness of SADC National Committees (SNCs) that are tasked with coordinating SADC programmes at member state level; the readiness of SADC member states to form a SADC Trade Area that is planned for 2008, in the light of attaining the agreed upon macroeconomic convergence targets (for instance on inflation, budget deficit and public debt); and on progress in the implimentation of the SADC protocol on trade.
