As we look at Africa’s growth story, we have to make sure that these underbelly things are addressed: [creating] jobs for Africa’s youth; making sure we deal with rural poverty, because there’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 it’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.
