The ongoing global transformation towards sustainable socio-economic developments is promoting increasing interests for economic partnerships in Africa. Poverty, inequality, environmental degradation and climate change have mobilised the world attention towards universal integrated goals that cuts across social, economic and environmental targets.
Businesses, governments, communities and civil societies will have to come together in partnerships to find common solutions as the magnitude of current challenges requires the entire global community to respond.
The global aspirations and the targets set forward in the SDGs will not be achievable without creating green growth in Africa where the biggest challenge lies in ensuring that green growth will provide poverty alleviation, drive real growth and build prosperity. Such challenges require collaborative partnership approaches with investment opportunities for promoting holistic planning to achieve the social, economic and environmental goals.
