The Sustainable Development Goals Center for Africa (SDGC/A) is organizing a Conference titled: “Africa 2030: SDGs within Social Boundaries” scheduled to be held at the Kigali Convention Center, Kigali, Rwanda on 07th and 08th May 2020.
This conference will bring together all stakeholders – leaders from governments across Africa, the United Nations Agencies, bilateral institutions, international and other non-governmental organizations, universities and research institutions, civil society and the private sector and the SDGCA Board members – to critically reflect and discuss the relevant policy recommendations and interventions in improving their commitment to deliver on the respective SDG targets.
It has been four years since the establishment of The SDGC/A and every year the Center releases a series of reports dubbed “AFRICA 2030 Report”. This year, The SDGC/A will publish the “Africa 2030: SDGs within Social Boundaries” focusing on the “Leaving no one behind” aspect of the SDGs. The report will document best practices of inclusion while mapping out the trigger factors of efficiency, relevancy and efficacy of the implementation efforts, consequently setting appropriate pragmatic recommendations for African countries to leverage inclusion. This report will be the first of its kind providing a complete analysis of where we are regarding inclusion related to the SDGs while also providing both qualitative and quantitative analysis of progress and constraints.
The Conference will also be an opportunity to officially launch the partnership between the SDGC/A and All Africa Global Media, a platform that hosts 150 African Media houses, in a bid to increase awareness, mobilize stakeholders and push for significant action to meet the SDGs throughout the continent.
