Driving Agenda 2063:
The Africa,

Africa’s agenda 2063 and UN SDG 2030 agenda are both key instruments for TWF. They both capture the essence and underscores a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity of all people and the planet, now and into the future. Agenda 2063 however, reemphasizes needs critical and comments to Africa.
