This is the first report by the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) to assess the governance mechanisms implementing the SDGs and Agenda 2063 at the continental level.
Why is the APRM producing this report?
The importance of good governance in the realisation of Sustainable Development is well known: good governance leads to good development outcomes as noted in the SDGs Index developed by the SDGs Centre for Africa and the latest Mo Ibrahim African Governance Index. The report also fills a gap in assessing national mechanisms responsible for the implementation of SDGs and Agenda 2063. This area has not received the same level of attention as the actual monitoring of progress on the indicators.
