About 500 delegates, from 30 countries, including 21 African countries, and more than 80 presidents of African regional governments participated in the event that “was a historical fact” according to many.

Praise for this fruitful first edition organized by the United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLG Africa), in collaboration with the Association of the Moroccan Region (ARM), the Eastern Regional Council (CRO) and the Ministry of the Interior (through the DGCT) was accompanied by a massive expression of gratitude from most of the participants towards the Moroccan authorities in general, and in particular towards His Majesty King Mohammed VI.

This acknowledgment of appreciation was also expressed in the “Saïdia Declaration” read by Professor Anyang Nyong‘o, Governor of Kisumu County in Kenya, which highlighted the need to make Africa’s regions structures of sustainable development clusters in the continent and important milestones in the construction of the “integrated Africa that we want”.

The “Saïdia Declaration” also affirmed the importance of calling on national governments and development partners to ensure that the financial means of implementing national public policies and global agendas reach the budgets of regional governments.

One of the key moments of this closing day was the presentation of the FORAF Roadmap that was drawn up to give concrete objectives to all the presidents of the African regions and invited them to strengthen their regional governments, financial, technical and democratically.

The actions presented in the Roadmap took into account the ten year plan of UCLG Africa, also known as GADEPPA 2.0. Participants committed to collaborating with the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCTA) secretariat and Afreximbank and encouraged the UCLG Africa secretariat to conclude an MoU with the aforementioned institutions.

The roadmap will be translated into an action plan that will be prepared by a working group made up of five (5) members, one (1) per region.

This work plan will be presented during the Pan-African Council of UCLG Africa to be held in Tangier, from November 1 to 3, 2022.

The heads of FORAF were elected during the assembly held on September 9, 2022.

The Executive Bureau of the FORAF is now made up of four vice-presidents (from the Amoron’i Mania Madagascar Region, represented by its Président, Ms. Aline Mamiarosa; the Association of the Regions of Morocco, represented by its President, Ms. Bouaida Mbarka, President of the Region Guelmin, Morocco, the Northern Region, Cameroon, represented by its President, Mr. Oumarou Ousmanou, the Province of Gauteng, South Africa, represented by its Prime Minister, Mr. David Makhura (who was represented by Mr. Lebogang Maile, MEC of Gauteng Province, South Africa) and as Chairman, the Nigerian Governors Forum represented by Dr. John Olukayode Fayemi, Governor of Ekiti State, Nigeria.

In his acceptance speech ón, the newly elected president of FORAF emphasized that “it is time for Africans to stop dying and start organizing!” The Forum of African Regions is a concrete first step leading to the emergence of the “Africa of the Peoples” called for by the African Union’s Agenda 2063, and an important change for a bright future for the continent.
