The Sustainable Development Goals Center for Africa (SDGC/A) is an autonomous not profit international  organization that supports citizens, governments, civil society, businesses and academic institutions to  accelerate progress towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Africa. Following the historic adoption of a new sustainable development agenda by the United Nations General  Assembly in September 2015, African leaders decided to take quick and firm action by establishing the  Center as a home-grown African institution – championing the implementation of the SDGs in line with the  principles of African Union’s 2063 Agenda. By agreeing to establish an African-owned center with proven  technical expertise, African leaders wanted to ensure that they act together in pursuit of a shared African  development vision. Opened in July 2016 at its headquarters in Kigali, Rwanda, the Center aims to build upon Africa’s existing
success with the Millennium Development Goals by bringing together people, ideas and innovations to  collectively achieve a more sustainable future
