Agenda 2063: The Africa We Want is Africa's strategic framework that seeks to deliver on its goal for inclusive and sustainable development and is a concrete manifestation of the pan-Africa drive for unity, self-determination, freedom, progress and collective prosperity pursued under Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance. Agenda 2063 clearly demonstrates the commitment of African People to the Pan African Vision of "An integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens, representing a dynamic force in the international arena".
