Proposal :  Draft Report on Sustainable Development Goals for the Southern Africa Subregion

Summary : The Economic Commission for Africa commissioned this report for Southern Africa as one of five reports designed to prepare African countries to effectively engage in the global SDG process and ensure that the goals to be agreed are well aligned with the continent’s sustainable development priorities. This and the reports of the other four subregions will inform the preparation of a consolidated African report on SDGs. As conceptualized in their early stages, the SDGs are intended to advance sustainable development at the global level by integrating the three dimensions of economic growth, social well- being and environmental protection. Governance, which comprises institutions, decision-making processes, legislation and the rule of law, among others, is considered as an overarching dimension of sustainable development.
The overall objective of this analytical report is to help relevant authorities propose a concise set of SDGs, targets and indicators for the subregion and provide well-informed and action-oriented recommendations and the way forward in implementing the proposed SDGs. This was done after identifying and analysing the priority sustainable development issues and challenges in the subregion and articulating the main priority areas and themes of sustainable development for Southern Africa.
