The goal of the declaration is also to demonstrate how African nations and their investment partners understand, manage and value natural capital, and to come up with a practical results-focused approach that would put African nations in the driving seat of sustainable economic growth.

The declaration was implemented during the 2012 Summit for Sustainability in Africa held in Botswana.
