#IDDA3 : La troisième décennie du développement industriel de l'Afrique

Date de publication : 2017-09-21

General info IDDA3
On  29  July  2016,  the  United  Nations  General  Assembly  unanimously  adopted  a  resolution proclaiming the period 2016-2025 as the Third Industrial Development Decade for Africa (IDDA III). By the terms of the resolution, the General Assembly called on the AU Commission, NEPAD, UNECA  and  specifically  UNIDO  "to  develop,  operationalize  and  lead  the  implementation  of the  programme  for  the  Third  Decade,  in  accordance  with  its  mandate  and  through  voluntary contributions".
Noting  that  Africa  remains  "the  poorest  and  the  most  vulnerable  region  in  the  world,"  the Assembly highlighted the need for the continent to take "urgent action to advance sustainable industrialization  as  a  key  element  of  furthering  economic  diversification  and  value  addition, creating  jobs  and  thus  reducing  poverty  and  contributing  to  the  implementation  of  the  2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development."

IDDA3 background:
Extreme  poverty  in  Africa  cannot  be  eradicated  without  a  structural  transformation  of  the continent's  economies.  Africa  must  industrialize.  It  must  also  do  so  in  a  socially  inclusive  and environmentally sustainable manner. 
The urgency of achieving industrial development in Africa is underlined by the environmental, social  and  economic  challenges  and  opportunities  that  the  continent  faces:  the  impact  of climate  change  on  rural  communities,  the  risks  related  to  natural  resource-based  economies, the  implications  of  growing  urbanization,  the  current  and  projected  growth  of  the  young population, the entrepreneurial potential of African youth and women, migratory pressures, and the  renewed  interest  of  foreign  and  domestic,  public  and  private  investors  in  the  continent, among other examples.

Digital campaign
UNIDO  will  lead  an  online  campaign  aimed  at  driving  awareness  of  the  Third  Industrial Development  Decade,  and  its  upcoming  high-level  event  in  NY;  to  call  for  action  by  world leaders  to  use  inclusive  and  sustainable  industrialization  as  a  vehicle  for  meeting  the  targets set in the 2030 Agenda. The campaign will centre around the hashtag #IDDA3; please use this official hashtag in all languages. 

Engagement
Ask  your  influencers  and  Goodwill  Ambassadors  to  share  information  about  IDDA3,  raise awareness of the importance of industry for Africa and use the #IDDA3 hashtag in all relevant posts.  Identify  media  partnerships  regionally  to  advertize  the  digital  campaign  and  identify regional influencers to participate in the campaign. 

IDDA3 event
Following the adoption of the UNGA resolution on IDDA3, a closed high-level event co-organized by AUC, UNECA, UNOSAA, AfDB and UNIDO will take place on 21 September 2017 on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly 72nd Session in New York. It aims to raise awareness of the decade, share achievements made to date, and reiterate the international community's commitment to the implementation of IDDA3. An event page has been created for further information:
