Voluntary Local Review Report on the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and African Union Agenda 2030
The city of Accra

The city of Accra is one of the first three cities in Africa to sign on to the Voluntary Local Review (VLR) in September, 2019 with the pledge of using the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to help reduce extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice and work to prevent the harmful effects of climate change by 2030.

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly’s Development Policy is underpinned by the SDGs and Africa Union’s Agenda 2063. The Assembly’s medium-term development plan and budgeting processes are all aligned to the two agendas.
The VLR report provides an overview of the metropolis’ steps and progress towards achieving the SDGs and the African Union Agenda 2063, as well as highlight the inclusivity in the planning process with the objective of bringing development closer to the people. It also serves as a reference point for tracking the progress on the various targets in pursuit of the vision to make Accra “A Smart, Safe, Sustainable and Resilient City”. It also shows the innovative actions the city is undertaking to accelerate implementation of the two agendas.

Furthermore, this maiden report provides a broad overview of the key findings and challenges of the review exercise and reiterates the city’s commitment to work in partnership with stakeholders to implement the next steps stated in the report.

The VLR framework have been recognized as an important tool for meaningful multi-stakeholder engagement and resource mobilization to advance the implementation of the aforementioned agendas. This process has enabled Accra Metropolitan Assembly to build capacity in monitoring and reporting of the SDGs and Agenda 2063.The Assembly would further leverage on opportunities thereof to accelerate the implementation of the SDGs and Agenda 2063.

On behalf of the city of Accra, I thank the National Development Planning Commission, Ghana Statistical Service and other local agencies for their support in preparing this report.
