Background
The maiden biennial continental reporting on Agenda 2063 will be commemorated under the theme, "Evidence-Based Reporting for Collective Reflection and Action on Agenda 2063". This report is a consolidation and evidence-based assessment of country and regional-level progress reports on Agenda 2063, complemented with interventions and results achieved at the regional and continental level. It serves as a rallying point for all stakeholders, including national and sub-national governments, regional bodies, and civil society, academia and development partners, to collectively accelerate the implementation of Africa's development blueprint.

The African Union Commission (AUC) and the African Union Development Agency-NEPAD (AUDA-NEPAD) coordinated the continental-level progress reports aimed at achieving the Agenda 2063's First Ten-Year Implementation Plan.

The objective of the reporting meeting will largely focus on situating Agenda 2063 as a prerequisite for unlocking national and regional development impasses and accelerating growth and development on the continent. Paying close attention to continuous reviews, empirical studies and collective reflections on the design and programming – framed around the economic integration of the continent (Aspiration 2).

The inaugural continental report on the Implementation of Agenda 2063 will officially be launched on the 8th February at the High-Level Forum on Agenda 2063.

About Agenda 2063

The January 2013 African Union Summit adopted Agenda 2063 – "The Africa We Want" as Africa's blueprint and master plan for sustainable development and economic growth of the continent. It is an affirmation by African Heads of State and Government of their commitment to transforming Africa into the global powerhouse. To fast-track implementation of Agenda 2063 over the 50 years, the First Ten-Year Implementation Plan spanning from 2014 to 2023 is developed and endorsed at the June 2015 Summit of the African Union. In line with the Union's results-based approach to development, high importance to reporting on the implementation of Agenda 2063 as a prerequisite for facilitating peer learning and mutual accountability and thus realising the continent's developmental goals. https://au.int/en/agenda2063/overview
