AFED Conference -Nov 2018 AFED Report 2017 afed brochure
Rabat, 5 May 2017

 

The 2017 session of the Arab Forum for Sustainable Development convened in Rabat, Morocco, between 3-5 May 2017. Hosted by the Government of Morocco, the event was organized by ESCWA, UN Environment and the League of Arab States. The Forum is a high-level meeting intended as a regional platform to discuss cohesive and coordinated implementation and follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in the Arab region.

The Forum discussed where the region stands in the second year of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Various countries presented their experiences, including how they have responded to the SDGs, in terms of alignment and integration of policies, measurement of progress, multi-stakeholder engagement and means of implementation.

The meeting focused on the theme of ‘Eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity in a changing Arab region'. The participants discussed equality, justice and distribution, economic growth and decent work as enablers for tackling poverty and achieving prosperity, as well as some of the challenges that the region is facing in eradicating poverty and attaining prosperity for all.

AFED report on ‘Sustainable Development in a Changing Arab Climate' was distributed, and Secretary General Najib Saab discussed its findings and conclusions with delegates.

The Forum will submit its recommendations, conveying key messages from the region, to the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), convened at the UN headquarters in New York in July 2017. This will ensure that Arab countries have a voice at the global level.
