The African Development Bank (AFDB) is hosting a workshop to discuss and exchange views on the challenges and opportunities of implementing the ‘SDG-16’ in fragile situations in Africa, in particular in the context of the Bank’s five priorities referred to as the “High 5s”.

The seminar will bring together the UN, AU, and other African stakeholders – practitioners, civil society actors and policy makers – to discuss how to strengthen their partnership to implement ‘SDG-16’ in Africa, based on their comparative advantages and mandates.

#SDG-16 aims at promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development; providing access to justice for all and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.

The seminar will also bring together subject expert representatives from the United Nations (UN) and the African Union (AU), as well as members of the Diplomatic corps in Abidjan and high level representatives from regional and international institutions based in Abidjan.

One of the topics to be discussed is “Policies, strategies and resources that will be needed at the level of countries to rise to the challenge of implementing the SDGs“.

Be a part of it!
