The Conference

Africa is at a decisive moment in its history. As the continent with the youngest population and a growing middle class, it is charting a path of structural transformation that will unleash the potential of its emerging markets to create a powerhouse of sustainable growth.

This year’s edition of the Africa Development Conference at Harvard University will bring together influential players to further the debate and share progressive policies and practices for a better future for Africa. The conference is designed to support Africa’s expedited structural transformation by offering a platform that advances intellectual and practical debate and enhances partnerships between governments and investors in rebranding and reshaping Africa in the international development arena. This reshaping will require a comprehensive evaluation of development with considerations from the fields of law, government, technology, health, education, design, media, and more.

Speakers include: Ebba Kalondo ∙ Meghan McCormick ∙ Habib Bamba ∙ Wura Mosuro ∙ Hezekiah Shobiye ∙ Tej Nuthulaganti ∙ Chinny Ogunro ∙ Dr Mwaba Kasese-Bota ∙ Dr. Chipo Dendere ∙ Fatou Wurie ∙ Jennifer Musisi ∙ Kaleba H. Ngoie-Kasongo ∙ Nafissatou Jocelyne Diop ∙ Moses Tut ∙ Clarence K. Moniba ∙ Lual Mayen ∙ James Wanki ∙ Corina Sanders ∙ Rehmah Kasule ∙ Kola Oyeniyin ∙ Mark Doumba ∙ Mohamed Abuwari
