Working Together for an Emerging Africa: UNDP and Japan
In 2017, the TICAD Ministerial Meeting in Maputo, Mozambique, takes stock of the commitments made during TICADVI, held in August 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya.
Its key outcomes, enshrined in the Nairobi Declaration, underscored the need to consolidate Africa’s development gains through sustained economic structural transformation, the building of resilient health systems, and the promotion of social stability to bring about prosperity for all.
The path toward African emergence is a marathon race that requires the mind of a sprinter and a long-term commitment. Through TICAD, UNDP and its partners remain fully committed to supporting African governments on that journey and work to ensure they are well poised to reap the rewards of a promising future.
