The 2030 agenda for sustainable development: Implementation, challenges and prospects

As part of its mandate, the Permanent Mission of the African Union in Brussels aims to sensitise the African Group of Ambassadors on important issues related to the Africa-EU Partnership.

In line with the Africa-EU Partnership and its 2014-2017 Roadmap (Priority Area 5: Global and Emerging Issues), the Permanent Mission deemed it necessary to organise a workshop on the challenges, prospects and implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

The objective of the workshop is to review the new 2030 Sustainable Development Program adopted at the UN Summit on Sustainable Development held in September 2015.

More specifically, the workshop is intended to give members of the African Group the opportunity to identify the challenges likely to be faced and the means to be put in place to ensure a proper implementation of the 2030 Programme.

The following questions will be addressed:

What overall strategy to be put in place to ensure ownership of the program and achieving the SDGs by all countries?

How to implement the Addis Ababa Programme of Action (AAPA) and the 2030 Agenda in the current global context marked by a steady decline in the Official Development Assistance (ODA)?

What are the necessary follow-up, review and accountability mechanism to be put in place to ensure implementation of the 2030 Agenda?

ECDPM’s San Bilal will give a presentation ‘International Private Financing for Development in Africa: Challenges and Opportunities’
