The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the priorities related to it and several other global agreements. In this regard, the rapid urban transition in Africa is a major transformative force contributing towards the reduction of poverty in all its forms and efforts aimed at tackling inequality and achieving a continent that is inclusive, integrated, prosperous, stable and peaceful. The global and regional commitments made by African Member States pertaining to the New Urban Agenda and Sustainable Development Goal 11 serve as vehicles to harness this urban dividend aligned with regional priorities, as articulated in the Common African Position on Habitat III. Additional urban priorities emanating from other frameworks, such as the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development provide further grounds to leverage cities and human settlements for inclusive growth.
