Abstract: A priori, the African Union and its program for development known as NEPAD can be regarded as a prayer wheel. This, due to the impressive number of international documents adopted at the African regional level and the narrow margin of maneuver of the African Union to find lasting solutions to economic and social crises in the continent, with environmental impacts. With certain indications of realism, we cannot think otherwise. When we know that since the advent of the African Union, sustainable development has become in the texts, the guiding principle of the process of African integration. This study analyzes the efforts of the African Union for a sustainable development in Africa as well as Africa's contribution to the evolution of international law. We have evaluated the effectiveness of the norms of sustainable development in the African regional level. We proceeded in two stages. This study also analyzes how the international standards relating to sustainable development was received in the African legal order and their implementation. Beyond the prioritization of the economic and social pillars of sustainable development, we highlighted the way in which the African Union reconciles the three values of sustainable development. This study contributes to shedding some light on the African Union’s legal approach with respect to sustainable development, and to show how this concept is materializes in a particular way in Africa. It firstly analyzes the obligations which the African Union lays on itself to translate to reality, the economic and social pillars of the sustainable development, and secondly, the obligations the African Union addresses to its Member States to implement these pillars. This study is also a contribution to the understanding of the evolution of the concept of development, right to development, sustainable development, and establishes the link between law and development. This study also helps to highlight the evolution of international law, including the questioning of the notion of subjective right and the consecration of the existence of rights with no owner in Public International Law, through the concept of sustainable development.
