Agenda 2063 National Development Priorities
For Africa to transform into the global powerhouse, African leaders recognize the need to refocus and reprioritise Africa’s agenda from the struggle against apartheid and the attainment of political independence for the continent, and instead prioritise inclusive social and economic development, continental and regional integration, democratic governance and peace and security amongst other issues aimed at repositioning Africa to becoming a dominant player in the global arena.
Africa’s Agenda 2063 encapsulates not only Africa’s Aspirations for the Future but also identifies key Flagship Programmes which can boost Africa’s economic growth and development and lead to the rapid transformation of the continent.
The First Continental Report on the Implementation of Agenda 2063 was presented in February 2020, as a consolidation and evidence-based assessment of country and regional-level progress reports on Agenda 2063, complemented with interventions and results achieved at the regional and continental level. It serves as a rallying point for all stakeholders, including national and sub-national governments, regional bodies, civil society, academia and development partners to collectively accelerate implementation of Africa’s development blueprint.
This animated film documents Africa’s vision for inclusive and sustainable development and answers the question, “what is Agenda 2063?”
