2019 SDG Country Report

The 2019 SDG Country Report for South Africa, follows the Voluntary National Review report that was presented at the 2019 High Level Political Forum. The country report provides us with a timely reminder, not only of our successes, given our historical context, but more so of the challenges that have to be addressed if we wish to attain the goals and targets set out in this global development framework. We now have a solid foundation that evaluates our progress to date and the extent of the tasks that lies ahead.

Agenda 2063 is Africa’s blueprint and master plan for transforming Africa into the global powerhouse of the future. It is the continent’s strategic framework that aims to deliver on its goal for inclusive and sustainable development and is a concrete manifestation of the pan-African drive for unity, self-determination, freedom, progress and collective prosperity pursued under Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance.

Agenda 2030 in South Africa

As a country that has attempted to align the SDGs to its National Development Plan (NDP), it is necessary to highlight that South Africa has played a vital role in the context of a number of global and continental processes that unfolded in the course of 2015 and led to the development of the 2030 Agenda and Agenda 2063. As of 2012, South Africa had its NDP and Vision 2030, aimed at addressing the country’s triple challenges of poverty, unemployment and inequality.
