WHAT IS AGENDA 2063?
Adopted in the 24th African Union summit in January 2015 in Addis Ababa, the Agenda 2063 Framework Document is a shared continental strategic framework for inclusive growth and sustainable development for Africa to be realised in the next fifty years.
Agenda 2063 details a roadmap of five ten-year implementation plans for member states to follow in order to realise the “Future we (Africans) want for Africa”. That is, an “integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens, and representing a dynamic force in the global arena”.
