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.

Sustainable Development Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere

The objective of Sustainable Development Goal 1 is to end to poverty in all its manifestations, including extreme poverty, over the next 15 years beginning in 2016. All people everywhere, including the poorest and most vulnerable, should enjoy a basic standard of living and the benefits of adequate social protection. Indeed, eradicating poverty remains one of the greatest global challenges today, hence the continued focus on this overarching goal in the 2030 Agenda and in Agenda 2063.
