International Decade for People of African Descent

As the DBDLI seeks opportunities to advance its mandate, we will promote the Decade with a goal to advance people of African Descent to realize their full potential.

The International Decade for People of African Descent, proclaimed by General Assembly resolution 68/237 and to be observed from 2015 to 2024, provides a solid framework for the United Nations, Member States, civil society and all other relevant actors to join together with people of African descent and take effective measures for the implementation of the programme of activities in the spirit of recognition, justice and development.

For more details and background, please visit the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent website.
