Who We Are

Welcome to “Agenda No One Left Behind”

AU Watch’s Agenda 2063 Unit (popularly called “Agenda No One Left Behind”) is the organisation’s main unit that was purposefully set up to drive the vision of the AU’s Agenda 2063.

We have learned that a collaborative approach involving the AU, AU Member States, civil society and the private sector is the key to ensuring that all of us get into ‘2063’. So, we promote the vision of Agenda 2063 through advocacy&communication, research, publications, events, training, seminars, consultancy, conferences and awards.
