The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which was adopted at the UN Sustainable Development Summit of Heads of State and Government in New York on 25 September 2015, is a milestone in international cooperation. Its objective is to make global development sustainable on a social, ecological and economic level. The 2030 Agenda is based on the principle to take on board even the weakest and most vulnerable (leave no one behind) and seeks to secure opportunities for future generations to live a fulfilled life. As the overarching global agenda guiding international cooperation, the 2030 Agenda builds the framework for all EAC-GIZ activities. Therefore, our support to the EAC on EAC integration contributes to the fulfilment of one or several SDGs. Besides the 2030 Agenda, African countries have committed to implement the African Union Agenda 2063, which is both a vision and a plan to build a more prosperous Africa in 50 years. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development acknowledges the importance of the AU Agenda 2063 and considers it an integral part of it.
