Tackling poverty and inequality to meet Sustainable Development Goals

The 10th edition of the African Economic Conference, titled Addressing Poverty and Inequality in the Post-2015 Development Agenda, takes place November 2-4 in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, and provides a forum to explore the policy, institutional, and investment frameworks needed to boost Africa’s equitable, inclusive and environmentally-sustainable development.

The annual conference is organized by the African Development Bank (AfDB), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the UN Economic Commission of Africa (ECA).

“With the approval of a new roadmap to 2030 in the form of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), this year is pivotal for development. We know that the SDGs have to work first and foremost for Africa. The 2015 African Economic Conference offers us an excellent opportunity to look again at Africa’s development course,” said Akinwumi Adesina, AfDB President. “Inclusive growth makes sure that everyone benefits, and nobody is left behind.”
