Key Highlights 

  • Africa is increasingly seeking to formulate a common African position ahead of key international events
  • Pathways to common positions are not always pre-defined and evolve depending on the needs that manifest themselves during the process. However, it is clear that in recent years, there is a consistent effort to formulate common positions ahead of key moments in the global agenda
  • Creating African Common Positions involves both technical and political input from various African actors, organisations and platforms. African negotiators often seek to form international partnerships to push their agenda forward
