Regional Events Identify Accelerators for Africa’s Decade of Action

Wednesday, March 4, 2020 - 10:00

The sixth session of the Africa Regional Forum on Sustainable Development (ARFSD 2020) was also the first regional consultation to take place under the UN@75 reform process.
Participants engaged in an in-depth discussion of key findings and lessons from a selection of 17 voluntary national reviews (VNRs) to be presented at the 2020 HLPF, as well as emerging lessons from voluntary local reviews (VLRs), which featured for the first time at the Forum.
The Forum adopted a ministerial declaration titled, ‘Victoria Falls Declaration on the UN Decade of Action and Delivery for Sustainable Development in Africa,’ as well as an outcome summary report and key messages containing Africa’s priorities and policy measures to speed up implementation of the 2030 Agenda and Agenda 2063.
