Post-Rio to Post-2015: Planning International Stakeholder Engagement
United Nations Environment Programme

One of the key outcomes of Rio+20 was to establish a process which will set up an inter-governmental Open Working Group (OWG) on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in late September 2012, comprised of 30 members. Member States will nominate these members from the five United Nations regional groups, with the aim of achieving fair, equitable, and balanced geographic representation. These proposed SDGs will be
global in nature and universal in application (therefore covering both developing and developed countries alike). They will have set a framework for the next 15 years from 2015-2030 in moving towards a more just, fair and sustainable world.

Agenda 2063: the Africa we want; first ten-year implementation plan, 2013-2023
United Nations Environment Programme

Agenda 2063 – a shared strategic framework for inclusive growth and sustainable development – was developed through a people-driven process and was adopted, in January of 2015, in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia by the 24th African Union (AU) Assembly of Heads of State and Government, following 18 months of extensive consultations with all formations of African society.
Agenda 2063 is anchored on the AU vision and is based on the seven aspirations derived from the consultations, namely:
1. A prosperous Africa based on inclusive growth and sustainable development;
2. An integrated continent, politically united, based on the ideals of Pan Africanism and the vision of Africa’s Renaissance;
3. An Africa of good governance, respect for human rights, justice and the rule of law;
4. A peaceful and secure Africa;
5. An Africa with a strong cultural identity, common heritage, values and ethics;
6. An Africa whose development is people-driven, relying on the potential of African people, especially its women and youth, and caring for children; and
7. Africa as a strong, united, resilient and influential global player and partner.
In order to ensure effective implementation, the 24th Assembly of the Union further requested the African Union Commission (AUC) to finalize a draft First Ten Year Plan of Agenda 2063 for consideration and adoption by the June 2015 meetings of the AU Policy Organs.
The document presents the First Ten-Year Implementation Plan for Agenda 2063. It builds upon the Agenda 2063 Framework Document adopted in January 2015, and seeks to accelerate Africa’s political, social, economic and technological transformation while continuing the Pan African drive for self-determination, freedom, progress and collective prosperity. Covering the period 2014-2023, it is the first of a series of five ten year implementation plans to be developed to realize the vision of the “Africa We Want By 2063”.
