The UN Secretary General, António Guterres, has warned that progress remains slow and uneven in Africa’s efforts to eradicate poverty and end exclusion. In his remarks to the 33rd Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union Summit, Mr. Guterres called for the scaling-up of efforts to eradicate poverty saying this remained an essential social and moral obligation for humankind. He commended the African Union for completing the first report on the country-level implementation of the ten-year implementation plan of Agenda 2063. This is a key milestone on the path to realizing the Africa we want, adding Agenda 2063 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development had galvanized Africa’s governments and their development partners on poverty.
