The African Union (AU) is the continental body consisting of 55 Member States that make up the countries of the African Continent. It was officially launched in 2002, as the successor to the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) which was formed in 1963 and lead the unification of the continent until 1999.

The AU has since introduced Agenda 2063, Africa’s Strategic Framework for inclusive growth and sustainable development.

This strategic framework was adopted in 2015 by the 24th AU Assembly of Heads of State and Government and is anchored on the AU vision of an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in global arena.
