GDSA Country Report: Five Years of Progress (2017)
This document is a preliminary five-year review of country-level progress under the Gaborone Declaration for Sustainability in Africa (GDSA), which documents the successes of GDSA member countries in implementing the GDSA vision since 2012. As in 2012, the GDSA remains unique in its focus on natural capital, linking the public and private sectors, and functioning as a voluntary commitment among like-minded countries in Africa. The country implementation experience over the last five years has shown the many benefits of the GDSA in the inherently complex world of sustainable development. It also highlights the leading role that the GDSA countries are taking in moving towards sustainability.
