The third session of the Africa Regional Forum on Sustainable Development (ARFSD 3) will be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 17-19 May 2017. The meeting is convening in preparation for the 2017 High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), which will meet in New York, from 10-19 July 2017, under the theme, “Ensuring inclusive and sustainable growth and prosperity for all.”

The Forum will provide a platform to discuss and exchange experiences and track and review progress in implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Agenda 2063 goals. Delegates are expected to be able to unpack and debate the selected SDGs along with their intricacies and interdependencies. They will also deliberate on Africa’s priorities and formulate recommendations for submission to the 2017 meeting of the HLPF.

To facilitate this, among others, a high-level panel session on the challenges and opportunities in achieving inclusive growth and prosperity for all will take place. Panel sessions will also convene on the Forum’s subthemes: eradicating all forms of poverty in Africa; ending hunger and achieving food security in Africa; ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all; promoting gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls; building resilient infrastructure and promoting inclusive and sustainable industrialization and innovation; conservation and sustainable use of the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.
