“The Africa Regional Consultative Meeting on the Sustainable Development Goals will be held at the United Nations Conference Centre in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 31 October to 5 November 2013.

The Consultative Meeting will comprise an experts segment from 31 October to 2 November 2013 and a ministerial segment from 4 to 5 November 2013.
The meeting will provide a platform for African countries to identify, articulate and reach consensus on the region’s sustainable development priorities and goals, which will take into account those emerging from the region’s Post-2015 Development Agenda Process embodied in the African common position on the same. In this regard, it will prepare Africa to speak with one strong voice and rally international support around SDGs that are well-aligned with the region’s sustainable development priorities and aspirations. The consultative meeting is expected to adopt an outcome document that will serve as Africa’s common reference document and collective input to the work of the UN General Assembly Open Working Group on SDGs.”
