Addressing board members, President Kagame appreciated the achievements the centre has recorded since its establishment in January this year.
“This important initiative has far-reaching implications in the process of sustainable development. The report, which was discussed, makes clear that the pace of activity at the SDG Centre for Africa has picked up, since January. I particularly appreciate Heads of State and Government who are here with us to reaffirm our shared commitment,” President Kagame said.
During the meeting, it was approved that the SDG centre for Africa - with Headquarters in Kigali, would expand to the Mano River region in West Africa with satellite centres in Liberia, Guinea and Ivory Coast.
Other pertinent issues discussed include the establishment of an SDG index and citizen report that would help track implementation of SDGs across the African continent.
