Articulating Africa’s position on the post-2015 MDG Agenda
The MDGs are a set of eight specific goals (many of them quantitative) that aim to improve human welfare. Indeed the aim of these MDGs is to help improve the welfare of the population in emerging and developing countries. As we approach the target date of 2015 to achieve these objectives, questions are increasingly being asked about what should be done beyond 2015.
The overall objective of the workshop was to ensure that ECA’s contribution to the UN publication is constructive, comprehensive and a true reflection and articulation of Africa’s position on the post-2015 MDG agenda.
The specific objectives were to:
- identify Africa’s development priorities for the post-2015 MDG Agenda
- inform the post 2015 Agenda debate based on the outcome of the meeting
- build consensus and partnership for national level consultations on the post-2015 MDG agenda
- assess the likely implications of the post-2015 agenda for MDG-based planning in Africa.
