African Countries Agree On Post-Development Issues

Member States of the post-2015 Development Agenda are expected to take to the national level key development issues during the UN Summit in New York between September 25-27, 2015.

The Grants Manager of the African Union High Level Committee on Post-2015 Development Agenda, Blamo Nimle, said member states agreed to domesticate the Agenda which includes its dissemination to all stakeholders, such as the National Legislature and civil society, among others.

Speaking Tuesday at the Ministry of Information press conference, Nimle said members will set national targets guided by the global level of ambition, but taking into account national circumstances.

According to him, they will also determine how the target will be aligned with or incorporated into national planning processes, policies and strategies.

He added that members will ascertain the capacity-building opportunities that may be available and utilized.

Nimle noted that Climate Change is considered a major challenge to global development which is seen as part of the development paradigm.

“We all have a role to play come 2030 when the goals shall have expired, we cannot afford to say that it was the government,” he emphasized.
