Accelerating Recovery from COVID-19 and the Full Implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and African Union Agenda 2063 at All Levels

The year 2023 marks a critical juncture, namely the midway point for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the conclusion of the first 10-year implementation plan (2014–2023) of Agenda 2063.

The achievement of those two overarching agendas is being impeded by global crises and conflicts. In the light of the significant challenges faced by the continent, in the present report, the need to urgently adopt and implement Sustainable Development Goal stimulus programmes, incentivize African States to evaluate and make necessary revisions to their national strategies to achieve the Goals, renew their commitment to supporting the most vulnerable, and create economies and societies that benefit everyone, is underscored.

This year’s report also sets out a series of practical and timely recommendations to accelerate country progress towards key Goals and re- lated aspirations, goals and targets of Agenda 2063.
