Dear Colleagues,

It gives me great pleasure to inform you that our colleague and friend Carlos Lopes has been appointed by the UN secretary General Ban Ki-Moon as the new Executive Secretary of the UN economic Commission for Africa (UNECA; see press release attached). Carlos is a leading, and very active member of the African research community, including as a member of the Scientific Committee of CODESRIA since his appointment to this body by the Executive Committee of CODESRIA last year. We congratulate and wish him all the very best as head of the ECA.
