International Consultant to Develop a Country Guidance Document on Mainstreaming SDGs, NDCs, Agenda 2063 and DRR into National Development Plans
In September 2015, African countries, together with other members of the United Nations General Assembly, adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and committed to realising its ambitious 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They also pledged to ‘Leave No One Behind’ and ‘to reach the furthest behind first’ in the pursuit of sustainable development. Earlier that year, in January, the Heads of State and Government of the African Union had already adopted Agenda 2063, which responds to the continent’s specific development challenges through seven aspirations and 20 goals. As signatories to both agendas, African countries find themselves having to simultaneously implement two bold initiatives.
Together with the 2030 Agenda and Agenda 2063, countries in Africa have also committed to implement the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, and to protect their hard-won development gains by mainstreaming and implementing the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction.
The conclusion of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change in December 2015 rekindled hope on a collective, cooperative and genuine global effort to tackle climate change. To maintain this political momentum countries will strive to scale up adaptation action and raise their ambition to reduce emissions. African countries, along with the rest of the world, submitted national climate commitments known as nationally determined contributions (NDCs).
