Project on the development of STISA 2024 Outputs

This is a predecessor to CPA with 10 years incremental plan for Science, Technology and Innovation Strategy for Africa (STISA-2024) that was adopted by the African Union (AU) Assembly of Heads of State and Governments in June 2014, which implementation is integral to achieving the AU Agenda 2063.



Agenda 2063 is based on continental aspirations for inclusive growth, sustainable development and social integration, and draws upon the potential of African people, especially women and youth, for its delivery.



The post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Common African Position (CAP) clusters Africa’s development priorities into six areas and emphasises the importance of science, technology and innovation (STI) through enhancing technological capacities for realising Africa’s transformative agenda, building an enabling environment for innovation, and increasing support for research and development.


STISA-2024 outlines the key socio-economic priority areas that Africa has to collectively address through scientific research and development. It is the first of ten-year incremental phasing strategies that responds to the demand for STI across various socio-economic and development sectors by embedding STI into these sectors. These will ensure that STI is an effective multi-functional tool and enabler for achieving the continental development goals, namely, diversification and beneficiation of resources to optimise our socio-economic growth potential, and sustaining and extending the current economic performance.

The strategy is positioning STI to contribute towards Africa’s transition to a knowledge-based economy. More importantly, it articulates the specific actions required to develop STI capabilities and the supporting instruments that are critical for responding to Africa’s transformative agenda.
