Introduction

On 14-15 September in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the regional post-monitoring workshop for Africa was hosted by the NEPAD agency and the African Union Commission (AUC), together with UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa and with support from the OECD/UNDP Joint Support Team. As a member of the Global Partnership Steering Committee, the NEPAD leads the coordination of the African position on effective development co-operation. The workshop brought together multiple stakeholders from governments, civil society, the private sector and development partners, including South-South partners, to review initial results of the monitoring round. The workshop also facilitated the preparation of Africa’s Common Position and Consensus (EN | FR) that will feed into the HLM2.

Summary

Participants underlined the importance and utility of the monitoring exercise, as it represents an opportunity for countries to assess progress on how development co-operation is conducted at the country level and to engage with development partners on this issue. It was also highlighted that the monitoring process should be sustained, continuous and firmly institutionalized at not only national level but also sub-national, regional and global levels. Moreover, the results of the monitoring exercise should be used to spur dialogue and commitments, so that concrete actions are undertaken to achieve the AU Agenda 2063 and Agenda 2030.
