Regional forums on sustainable development are part of the follow-up and review architecture of the 2030 agenda for sustainable development. The other follow-up mechanisms are the voluntary national reviews and the high level political forums on sustainable development. The mandate to establish the regional forums on sustainable development is derived from United Nations general assembly resolutions 67/290, 70/1 and 70/299. These resolutions, among other provisions, acknowledge the importance of the regional dimension of sustainable development; invite the United Nations regional commissions to contribute to the work of the high-level political forums on sustainable development, including through annual regional meetings; and encourage member States to identify the most suitable regional forum to contribute to follow-up and review at the high-level political forum on sustainable development. The aim of the Africa Regional Forum on Sustainable Development is therefore to advance integrated implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the goals set out in Agenda 2063. To this end, the Regional Forum provides a multi-stakeholder platform for follow-up and review of progress and challenges in the implementation of the goals of the two agendas, while strengthening learning and advocating effective policy measures and actions.
