Post-2015 development agenda: Common African Position adopted in N'Djamena in Chad

 

 

( N'Djamena, Chad ) , February 28, 2014 - The High Level Committee of the African Union (AU) held a meeting around the post-2015 development agenda. In attendance at the deliberations were a dozen leaders from African countries and the African Union.


 

At the end of the discussions, the participants adopted the N'Djamena statement on the Common African Position on the post-2015 development agenda. The statement also known as the N'Djamena Declaration, acknowledges that the continent will not achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which are due in 2015 and sets a new milestone for the ensuing period. It constitutes a roadmap for the implementation of the post-2015 agenda against 2063.



 

 

The 10 member countries of the committee believe that the adoption of this document will equip the AU Member States with the appropriate framework, to enable them to speak with one voice, and to coordinate their efforts to achieve the African peoples’ socio -economic development aspirations based on inclusive growth as part of the post-2015 agenda.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They also highlighted the peace and security pillar, emphasizing its inextricable link with development and urged the African countries to take ownership of the Common African Position which rests on six pillars that meet the aspirations of the African peoples.



The pillars include structural economic transformation and inclusive growth, science, technology and innovation, people-centered development, environmental sustainability and natural resources management.
