Report on sustainable development goals for the Southern Africa subregion
The present report on sustainable development goals for the Southern Africa subregion forms one of five subregional reports prepared within the framework of the Africa Post-2015 consultations and the Rio+20 follow-up processes. The subregional reports together with the Africa regional report are intended to provide information to the African countries to effectively engage in the global sustainable development goals process and ensure that the goals to be agreed upon were effectively aligned with the subregion’s sustainable development priorities. All the reports were presented at the Africa Regional Consultative Meeting on sustainable development goals organized by the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) jointly with the African Union Commission and the African Development Bank from 31 October to 5 November 2013. The meeting adopted its outcome document as a technical input to the work of the Africa High-level Committee on the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
