The latter workshop is the second edition of the APRM-UN CEPA workshop in Pretoria, which took place in October 2019. The APRM is privileged to be an ‘’observer’’ at the UN Committee of Experts of Public Administration (CEPA) and has been dedicated to promote the awareness of CEPA principles amongst African countries since they are strongly imperative for enhancing good governance and strategies for the achievement of both development agendas. The principles were endorsed by ECOSOC in 2018 and provided guidance and concrete strategies to countries for effective governance of SDGs and Agenda 2063.The Cape Town workshop is foreseen to address various topics, including:
a) Accelerating recovery from the impacts of COVID-19 ;
b) Institutions and the Decade of Action and Delivery in Africa;
c) African countries’ experiences in the implementation of CEPA principles and findings of APRM Baseline Study on this regard;
d) Mainstreaming the 2030 Agenda and Agenda 2063 into national planning instruments and strategies;
e) Mobilizing Partnerships and Stakeholders for 2030 Agenda and 2063 Agenda implementation and COVID-19 recovery;
f) a capacity building segment on enhancing monitoring and evaluation of Agenda 2063 and Agenda 2030 focusing especially on the current effort of the African Union to track Agenda 2063; and the operationalization of CEPA Principles in the Post COVID-19 era.
