Consequently, UNIDO developed a Roadmap for implementing the IDDA III anchored on six interlinked pillars namely, global forums, strategic support to develop and manage industrial policy instruments, technical cooperation, cooperation at the level of the African Union, regional economic communities and countries, partnerships and resource mobilization, and communication and advocacy.
Under the sixth pillar – communication and advocacy, the championship initiative is aimed at leveraging high-level political leadership for the promotion and visibility of the IDDA III. In this regard, the role of a champion is mainly to provide publicity and advocacy support towards the implementation of the IDDA III.
PresidentNana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is expected to play the role of a champion of the IDDA III from 2021 – 2023.
The Presidents of Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Kenya, Malta, Niger, Senegal, South Africa, and Zambia have previously played the role of champions of the IDDA III from 2018 – 2020.
