Agenda 2063: Africa We Want, and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030The blueprint of the African Union (AU) for a continental transformation, Agenda 2063 (adopted in 2013), sets the pace for a collective commitment towards shared peace, progress, and prosperity on the continent. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all the Member States of the United Nations in 2015, toed a similar path of liberation and sustainable development for the people. Both instruments are intertwined. This includes improving the standard of living of the people by providing decent work, providing social security, ending poverty in all its forms, and achieving food security. Others are the provision of standard and sustainable infrastructure, upholding human rights and democratic principles, improving communication infrastructure, and building resilient institutions.
YDC-OOPL has partnered with government agencies, non-governmental organisations, the private sector, and individuals to support small businesses, promote democratic ideals, enhance digital skills in young people and discourage illegal migration, among others. Indeed, most of its programmes are proudly aligned with these landmark agendas.
