The Cairo Communiqué was released today at the conclusion of the Egypt - International Cooperation Forum (Egypt – ICF) to provide a set of recommendations for international policymakers to embed into their sustainable development efforts.
The communiqué outlines how multilateralism, international cooperation and public-private sector collaborations can help generate the additional $3.7 trillion a year needed to bridge the SDGs financing gap and put the world on a path to a green recovery from the pandemic.
Commenting on the release of the communiqué, during the event’s closing ceremony, Egypt’s Minister of International Cooperation, H.E. Dr. Rania A. Al-Mashat, said: “We will be working hard over the next 12 months to continue with the momentum started here at the Egypt-ICF to ensure that the recommendations outlined in this communiqué are implemented, alongside our international partners.”
Earlier, at the start of day two of the Forum, Al-Mashat presented the country’s pioneering approach to the ODA-SDG mapping model to the international community, noting that it “offers a robust example of how we can align globally on the sustainability agenda – due to its adaptability and scalability.”
Egypt’s digital ODA-SDG model is being used to measure the real-world impact of 377 ongoing SDG-related projects in the country, worth more than $25 billion. The “pioneering” initiative is now ready to be “replicated in other countries,” the UN’s Resident Coordinator for Egypt, Elena Panova, told the Forum.
Earlier, the Egypt-ICF heard how Africa’s transition to digital trade and its reliance on technology to push towards food security are key for a green and inclusive recovery.
“It is vital to have the perfect mix of policies to foster the use of technology, skills development and building future industrial competencies – including advanced technology – to create a win-win situation for everyone in Africa,” explained Ahmed Rezk, UNIDO Regional Hub office in Egypt.
