Regional Programme for Africa

Strategic priorities

The Regional Programme is well-positioned to analyze the continent’s dynamic environment and propose a new path forward to ensure that no one is left behind. Our 3 priorities are fully aligned with the six impact areas of the Renewed Strategic Offer in Africa and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development towards the achievement of transformational change in Africa.

Six Strategic Impact Areas:

  • Natural resource governance 
  • Youth and women's empowerment 
  • Structural economic transformation
  • Climate change migration and adaptation
  • Affordable and sustainable energy
  • Peace and security

The following priorities reflect our commitment to Agenda 2063 and Agenda 2030 in the achievement of transformational change in Africa:

  • Priority area 1: AU and RECs deliver on their mandate, especially cross-cutting issues related to resilience-building
  • Priority area 2: Regional growth is inclusive, transformational and sustainable with reduced economic inequalities, and characterized by structural transformation
  • Priority area 3: Regional institutions sustain peace and build resilience to crises and shocks
