About Centre for Sustainable Development and Education in Africa
The Centre for Sustainable Development and Education in Africa (CSDEA) is an independent organization that seeks to address the challenges of violence, poor governance and health that are making sustainable development elusive in Africa. The vision of the CSDEA is to propose and promote creative and new approaches towards ensuring sustainable development in Africa. The CSDEA advocates transformational policies that lead to peacebuilding, sustainable health and good governance through advocacy, capacity development, reflective dialogue and research. The CSDEA also embraces a multi-stakeholder approach while networking with organizations that share similar values at the local, sub-regional, continental and global levels.
The CSDEA commits to mobilizing civil society, communities and governments in Nigeria and in the Lake Chad region countries to monitoring progress made with the implementation of the SDG 16 and agenda 2030 through national and regional review exercises including publishing results of such reviews. We also commit to advocating for the SDG 16 and the agenda 2030 including working to align other existing peacebuilding and development frameworks
We work to organize an annual review of the SDG 16 and the agenda 2030 in Nigeria, Chad and Niger to bring together civil society, communities and government to share experience on successes, challenges and way forward for the implementation of SDG 16 and agenda 2030. We also develop advocacy materials to popularize and disseminate the SDG 16 and agenda 2030 among stakeholders and communities while also aligning SDG 16 and agenda 2030 with other existing peacebuilding frameworks and policies such as UNSCR 1325, UNSCR 2250 and the International Dialogue for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (IDPS) and its New Deal for Engagement in Fragile and Conflict-Affected States.
