The tenth session of the Africa Regional Forum on Sustainable Development (ARFSD-10) will be jointly organised by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) in collaboration with the African Union Commission, the African Development Bank and the United Nations system organisations.

The Forum will take place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, from 23 April to 25 April 2024. It will be held in a hybrid format, allowing in-person and virtual participation. The theme is “Reinforcing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Agenda 2063 and eradicating poverty in times of multiple crises: The effective delivery of sustainable, resilient and innovative solutions.”

The objectives of the forum include reviewing progress, challenges, and opportunities in SDG and Agenda 2063 implementation, advocating for effective policy measures, discussing transformative interventions, and adopting outcomes such as a summary with key messages and the Cairo Declaration on sustainable solutions and reinforcing development agendas. These outcomes will guide actions at various levels to accelerate integrated implementation and poverty eradication amidst crises.
