Report on sustainable development goals for the Eastern Africa subregion
The present report on sustainable development goals (SDGs) for the Eastern Africa subregion is one of five subregional reports prepared within the framework of the Africa Post-2015 and Rio+20 follow- up consultative processes. The subregional reports, together with the Africa regional report, are intended to inform the engagement of African countries in the global SDGs process with a view to ensuring that the goals agreed upon are in line with the region’s sustainable development priorities. All the reports were presented at the Africa Regional Consultative Meeting on the SDGs, jointly organized by Economic Commission for Africa (ECA), the African Union Commission (AUC) and the African Development Bank (AfDB), from 31 October to 5 November 2013. The meeting adopted its outcome document as a technical input for consideration by the Africa High-level Committee on the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
