Sport is a powerful tool that can be used to promote sustainable development in Africa. The United Nations and the African Union have recognized the importance of sport in achieving their respective development goals by including it as a key component in their 2030 Agenda and 2063 Agenda, respectively. Sport can be used to address a range of sustainable development challenges, from promoting health and well-being to advancing gender equality and reducing poverty. Through sports, individuals and communities can develop skills, build networks, and increase their resilience, which can contribute to achieving sustainable development goals. Creating solutions through sport can also foster collaboration between governments, civil society, and the private sector, and mobilize resources to support sustainable development efforts. By leveraging the power of sport, we can support the sustainable development goals in Africa and accelerate progress toward a more prosperous and equitable future.
