Having adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Agenda 2063: The Africa We Want, of the African Union, member States are encouraged to review, on a regular basis, the frameworks and mechanisms that they have in place to implement the two agendas, with a view to fostering inclusive growth and development. As part of its follow-up and review mechanisms, the 2030 Agenda encourages member States to conduct regular and inclusive reviews of progress at the national and subnational levels that are country-led and country-driven.
Seven African countries are currently engaged in the review process ahead of this year’s High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, in July 2023, all seven of whom are preparing their second national review. Sustainable development reviews conducted at the district, governorate and municipality levels complement the national review process. By engaging with multiple stakeholders on the ground, voluntary local reviews reach a grass-roots audience, which, in turn, can inform and move the sustainable development process forward.
As a part of its ongoing support for voluntary national and local reviews, the Economic Commission for Africa, in partnership with the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat, UN-Habitat and the African Union, holds an annual preparatory and capacity-building workshop on the margins of the Africa Regional Forum on Sustainable Development. The objectives of the 2023 workshop are to strengthen the capacity of member States to implement the 2030 Agenda and Agenda 2063, link local and national processes, support preparations for the submission of national reviews to the 2023 high-level political forum and identify and promote African priorities for the Sustainable Development Goals Summit.
