In order to maintain the strong progress achieved since 2000 and meet the longer-term challenges, it is important for both African governments and their international partners to meet their development commitments and to monitor and evaluate their results. The report is a unique collaborative exercise in mutual accountability, undertaken under a mandate from NEPAD Heads of State and Government. Taking into account the expiry of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and ongoing deliberations on the post-2015 Agenda, the report adopts where possible a longer-term view by reviewing commitments and progress since 2000. African countries are strongly committed to achieve in New York a new global development framework to succeed the MDGs in accordance with the Common African Position (CAP) on the post-2015 Development Agenda. To participate in achieving Africa’s development aspirations, ongoing deliberations on the SDGs should reflect an appropriate balance of development outcomes and enablers, geared towards social inclusiveness and economic transformation.
