About Agenda 2063

Agenda 2063 is the continent’s blueprint and master plan for transforming Africa into the global powerhouse of the future. It is the concrete manifestation of how the continent intends to achieve this goal within a 50-year period. The First Ten-Year Implementation Plan of Agenda 2063, spanning from 2014 to 2023, outlines a set of goals, priority areas and targets that the continent aims to achieve at national, regional and continental levels.

Some of the past and current initiatives it builds on include: the Lagos Plan of Action, The Abuja Treaty, The Minimum Integration Programme, the Programme for Infrastructural Development in Africa (PIDA), the Comprehensive Africa Agricultural Development Programme (CAADP), The New partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD), Regional Plans and Programmes and National Plans.

Biennial performance report on Agenda 2063

The African Union Commission and African Union Development Agency-NEPAD were tasked by policy organs of the African Union to coordinate and prepare biennial performance reports on Agenda 2063. This is the first continental-level report that has consolidated progress reports from 31 out of 55 AU Member States, covering 56% of the continent, and six Regional Economic Communities. The report presents an analysis of progress made on the implementation of Agenda 2063 against the 2019 targets.

Monitoring and Evaluation of Agenda 2063

The adoption of the First Ten-Year Implementation Plan led to a robust consultative process for developing the Agenda 2063 Monitoring and Evaluation Framework and corresponding Core Indicator Handbook that were adopted in January 2018, thus, providing a concise architecture to elaborate systems and processes from national through to continental structures.

This continental-level report is a culmination of country and regional-level reports highlighting the progress of implementation of Agenda 2063 at the national, regional and continental level. This report also serves as the inaugural report with the framework of Agenda 2063’s biennial reporting cycle.
