A last Africa Working Group Retreat ahead of the HLM2 was organized from 14 to 16 November 2016 in Magaliesburg, South Africa with the leadership of NEPAD and support of UNDP Regional Service Center. The aim of the meeting was to consolidate inputs on the final draft of the Nairobi Outcome Document by African stakeholders at the continental level. The Retreat, made possible with funding support from the European Commission, had the following objectives:
Review the level of incorporation of the African submission and issues on 3rd and final Draft Outcome Document;
Consider the emerging set of top most GPEDC commitments for addressing post-Nairobi vis-à-vis key African political messages and position;
Concretize Africa specific commitments vis-à-vis other constituencies’ commitments based on the common set of top most commitments;
Provide very specific input to the text of the final draft outcome document vis-à-vis key African political messages and position.
