In 2015, the United Nations endorsed a global development agenda known as 2030 Agenda for sustainable development goals. As of now, many countries including African Members have embarked on the implementation of SDGs. Africa member states also adopted Agenda 2063 to spearhead the transformation of the continent. As there are existing national development plans ongoing, countries made efforts to mainstream both SDGs and Agenda 2063 (A2063) into their development plans. Concerns remain regarding the alignment of national development plans with continental and global development agendas. For this purpose, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) has developed a toolkit, namely, the Integrated Planning and Reporting Toolkit (IPRT) to support member countries to align continental (e.g. A2063) and global (e.g. SDGs) with national development plans (NDPs), assess the progress made by member States towards the achievement of SDGs and Agenda 2063 goals, as wells as simultaneously report the alignment and progress of both agendas.
The IPRT has already been deployed in some Member States and other countries are planned to be included among the beneficiaries by the end of 2020. This training has been organized to build capacities in member countries on the use and functionalities of the IPRT.
