UNECA Regional forum on sustainable development. May 2017

UNECA

The 2017 Africa Regional Forum on sustainable development in preparation for the 2017 High-level political forum on sustainable development (HLPF) will convene at the United Nations Conference Centre in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 17 to 19 May 2017, under the theme: “Ensuring inclusive and sustainable growth and prosperity for all.” This theme is well aligned with that of the 2017 HLPF, which is “Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing world”.

With a particular focus on the selected SDGs for the 2017 HLPF and the corresponding goals of the first 10-year implementation plan of Agenda 2063, the specific objectives of the Forum are to:

  • Carry out regional follow-up and review, deliberate on progress and address challenges and opportunities in the implementation of the two agendas
  • Provide a platform for peer learning and to share experiences, good practices and lessons learned to accelerate implementation of the two agendas; and
  • Deliberate on and agree on Africa’s priorities and recommendation in form of key messages as the region’s collective input to the 2017 HLPF session.
