African countries have already started the hard work of implementing Agenda 2063 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which were adopted in January 2015 and September 2015 respectively. Both agendas are complex in terms of numbers of goals, targets and indicators as well as dimensions of development covered; both are very ambitious and geared towards sustainable development through notably industrialization, eradication of poverty and inclusiveness. This progress report on Agenda 2063 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (2017) will provide a rigorous assessment of Africa’s progress in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Agenda 2063 and serve as a basis for policy discussion, peer learning and advocacy.

The report is informed mainly by latest data from a broad range of sources, including the International Labour Organisation, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, the Statistics Division of the United Nations and the World Bank’s world development indicators. These are complemented by a review of the latest literature on both Agendas and other pertinent analytical works, especially regarding the goals for which data availability is limited.
