"The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) boss, Mr. Carlos Lopes says that “the both agendas converge and are linked. He further opined that Africa will have their own agenda and establish dialogue with the universal agenda, stating that “African countries creating development plans on the basis of Agenda 2063 may decide to infuse SDG-related activities in those plans.” He however warned that African countries must generate internal revenue and not rely too heavily on donor funds to achieve sustainable development and Agenda 2063."
Inspired me Education
"Agenda 2063 and the SDGs are linked and clear: “We want a prosperous Africa based on inclusive growth and sustainable development,” specifically an annual growth rate of at least 7% (the same as the SDGs target), a healthy and nourished citizens, and a three-fold increase in food and agriculture. Under aspiration 6, Africa hopes to achieve development, “relying particularly on the potential of women and youth.”"
Involved me Human Rights
"“Given that most of the SDGs and their targets align with Nigeria's priorities, said Development Generation Africa International (DGAI), Chief Administrative Officer Mr. Eluwa Austin, the nation under President Buhari, may well be on the brink of a massive transformation.”"
Inspired me Education
"In particular, efforts will be deployed and redoubled to reduce maternal mortality to below 70 per 100,000 live births, and end HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other tropical diseases; to ensure quality education and gender equality; achieve universal access to safe (clean) drinking water and energy for all; address climate change; and achieve at least a 7% global economic growth, reduction in conflicts, among other major goals. Africa also has an Agenda 2063 of its own!"
Informed me Environment
"“We want to change our world, noted German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and we can” “Take your passion and compassion – and let's make the global goals a global reality,” urged the UN Secretary-General, as he further urged us to: “hold our leaders to them. Demand that they deliver.” The SDGs aim to end poverty, hunger and inequality, tackle climate change, and build resilient infrastructures and peace – all to be achieved between now and 2030. Effectively taking over from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). “You voted for change and now change has come" said, President Buhari of Nigeria."
