NEPAD is the topic of a discussion document released by the South African Council of Churches. It was prepared through a consultative process in the churches led by the South African Council of Churches and the Southern African Catholic Bishops' Conference and was drafted by the SACBC Justice & Peace Department.

The policy platform presents policy work in progress for purposes of information sharing and provoking further contributions. These are not official positions of civil society, although they are positions taken by groups in civil society after debate and discussion. They may, after further discussion, become part of a South African civil society position.
