Event: African Economic Conference 2015: “Addressing Poverty and Inequality in the Post 2015 Development Agenda”

The theme for the 2015 African Economic Conference (AEC) is Addressing Poverty and Inequality in the Post 2015 Development Agenda. As outlined in the African Union’s (AU) Agenda 2063 and the Africa’s Common Position on Post 2015 documents, the vision is for “an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the global arena.” Key among Africa’s aspirations is to achieve prosperity that is based on inclusive growth, and development that is people driven and that also unleashes the potential of women and youth.
