Our African and global anchorage

CONTRIBUTION TO THE 2063 AGENDA

Our actions contribute to the implementation of the African Union's Agenda 2063, adopted in 2015 by the 25th Assembly of Heads of State of the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in order to achieve the continent's vision of its future: "the Africa we want." This strategic framework is a concrete manifestation of the Pan-African will for unity, self-determination, freedom, progress and collective prosperity.
