Held under the theme of  the “Role of EALA in implementing the SDGs: Promoting peaceful and Inclusive Societies for Sustainable development”, the two day workshop brings together Members of EALA and resource persons from institutions working round the clock to ensure Africa’s concerns are taken on board fully when SDGs are rolled out.

The Head of the Africa Platform Secretariat, Paul Okumu remarked that it was time for African countries to fully implement laws and policies around development.  He said a number of SDGs were in one way or another already encapsulated in policy frameworks.

He remarked that the continent may face challenges as the goals may be complex to realize.

“Some of the areas have not been completed such as that dealing with Climate change,” he added.

Associate Director of Society for International Development, Ali Hersi during the same meeting said it was necessary to have concrete binding commitments from Partners.
