African Peer Review Mechanism Baseline study Report

The Africa Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) has an expanded dual mandate of monitoring and evaluating AU Agenda 2063 and SDGs 2030. Particular focus is on SDG 16 - effective, strong, and efficient institutions and peaceful societies which encounters aspirations three and four of Agenda 2063: aspiration three - An Africa of Good Governance, Democracy, Respect for Human Rights, Justice and the Rule of Law and aspiration four - A Peaceful and Secure Africa. At the backdrop of complexities to implementation, reporting and realisation of both agendas across the Continent, the APRM took the lead to conduct this baseline study on CEPA principles of effective governance of SDGs 2030 and AU Agenda 2063.


Ms. Caroline Makasa, Ag. DG at SDGCAfrica giving the welcome remarks during the official launch of APRM Baseline Study on implementation of the UN-CEPA principles of effective governance for sustainable development in Africa.

The captioned study’s development derives from the APRM Africa Regional Workshop’s recommendations on Effective Governance for Sustainable Development, which was held from October 30th to November 1st, 2019 in Pretoria, South Africa. As an outcome of this workshop, the APRM and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA) resolved to undertake a baseline study on the status of implementation of the eleven (11) UN-CEPA principles - of effective governance for sustainable development in Africa

Africa’s development as charted in Agenda 2063, The Africa we Want and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), “Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” The intention is to accelerate the attainment of the most ambitious global agenda ever taking into account, both the content and context of government with a clear view of the world in 2030. We do so having lived through 2020 and 2021 with the COVID-19 pandemic. This experience should lead us to a greater realisation that the context within which the SDGs are situated must not be expressed in static terms, as if, the world ten years from now, will be the same as today.

This Report serves as a reference for African experts and policymakers on the UN Committee of Experts on Public Administration (CEPA) principles for effective governance of SDGs and Agenda 2063 The Africa we Want. As Africa’s home-grown organization encourages sharing best practices on good governance amongst African Union’s member states, this study comes when the pandemic COVID-19 imposes severe daunting consequences on Africa’s human and socio-economic integration aspirations. Over the last three years, the APRM has been privileged to participate in CEPA activities and annual meetings as an observer. The humble APRM baseline study on these principles is an outcome of Member-States’ recommendations to prepare a knowledge product on these principles and their applicability on the African context.
