Climate Change- Importance of Africa’s Role in Global Production needs to be Reviewed as Leaders agr
The role of Africa in the global production sector needs to be reviewed in the effort to truly realise the global sustainable development goals set by the United Nations, stressed President John Dramani Mahama.
He added that in order to reduce the number of young Africans migrating to European countries for work and a better standard of living, the world will need to seriously think about relocating more industries and production to Africa. President Mahama touched on these points at the end of the 3-day summit in New York, where the leaders of 193 United Nations member countries agreed to adopt the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. The summit was part of the 70th Session of the UN General Assembly meetings.
All the African leaders came to an unanimous agreement that in order to help realise all the 17-goal universal sustainable development agenda by 2030, the African economies needs to be given the adequate boost to be able to add value to the global economy.
