Hosted in Kinshasa, the 2015 African Economic Conference has attracted many stakeholders at various levels of public and private sector activity.
Those committed to the event taking place in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) early in November include policy-makers, researchers and development practitioners attend interested in strategic contributions to the implementation of concrete actions aimed at poverty and inequality reduction in the context of the post-2015 development agenda.
Fundamentally, the conference represents the opportunity to assess the impact of current growth strategies on poverty, inequality and human development in Africa. Dig deeper, and one finds further opportunities, to address remaining socio-economic and political challenges.
The lasting value of the conference is to enable the dissemination of in-depth presentations of policy-oriented research by both established academics and emerging talents from the continent, facilitating ongoing debate, informing decisions on policy, providing the basis for action towards an increasingly equitable, inclusive and environmentally-sustainable continent.
