AFRICA CENTER FOR ECONOMIC DIALOGUE (AfCED) is a nonprofit, free-market think tank that embraces a framework that spurs creative thinking and vitalizing practical solutions for societyï¿½s economic and social challenges while helping people build meaningful lives in which they can experience well being and access to resources required to create opportunities for themselves and their broader communities.
We seek to advance unconventional economic and policy solutions that support growth and development by convening leaders and innovators from diverse fields and differentiated viewpoints, and constructing programs and policy initiatives to solve Africas most pressing challenges. We do this through four facets;
As we look at Africaâ€™s growth story, we have to make sure that these underbelly things are addressed: [creating] jobs for Africaâ€™s youth; making sure we deal with rural poverty, because thereâ€™s quite a lot; and also making sure that we allow African economies to be more resilient and therefore able to adapt to climate change that is impacting the continent. AfCED and our partners are committed public -private dialogues and insights that can drive growth and development on the continent. You are welcome in partnering with us while we empower youth, women, and catalyze economic and social change.
Growth in Africa has picked up in the past few years, but itâ€™s not without challenges. As the continent aims to lift millions of people out of poverty, it must contend with what constitutes healthy growth and how to create high-quality jobs, among other questions. AfCED is focused on influencing public-private collaborations for Economic and Social transformation while helping people build meaningful lives for themselves and their broader communities.
