The draft 2018-2019 regional roadmap focuses on SDG 2 (zero hunger) and SDG 8 (decent work and economic growth), among other SDGs. Representatives from 24 UN organizations, international organizations and funding institutions attended the annual SRCM for North Africa, which took place from 1-2 March in Rabat, Jordan. The meeting focused on sharing experiences with SDG implementation in the North Africa region, and discussed opportunities for improving coordination and synergies. Participants identified several SDGs as high priority for the region, including SDG 2, SDG 5 (gender equality), SDG 6 (clean water and sanitation), SDG 7 (affordable and clean energy), SDG 8, SDG 10 (reduced inequalities) and SDG 13 (climate action). The draft 2018-2019 regional roadmap focuses on improving regional actors’ understanding and implementation of the SDGs.
