The main objective of this framework of cooperation is to strengthen collaboration in order to accelerate the achievement of African Agenda 2063 and the Global SDGs Agenda 2030, capitalizing on each party’s comparative advantage. Specifically, the planned activities include organization of annual VNRs continental workshop as a follow up to the HLPF and United Nations General Assembly resolutions to strengthen the African Union’s role in the regional coordination among African countries and promote VNR peer-learning and best practices between African Union member states. In line with this collaboration, SDGCA reviewed and authored chapter two of the APRM baseline report on the United Nations Committee of Experts on Public Administration (CEPA) principles.
