The Special High-level Dialogue on the Sustainable Development of Africa will be held on the theme, ‘The Africa We Want: Reconfirming the Development of Africa as a Priority for the United Nations System.’ The event aims to contribute to achieving Africa’s transformative vision for development, as encapsulated in the seven aspirations of the African Union’s (AU) Agenda 2063.
The High-level Dialogue is aligned with the AU’s theme of the year, ‘Strengthening resilience in nutrition and food security on the African continent: strengthening agro-food systems, health and social protection systems for the acceleration of human, social, and economic capital development.’ Convened by the Presidents of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) and UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the Dialogue aims to provide a platform for African Member States and their partners to share country experiences, challenges, and lessons learned in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Agenda 2063.
