Roundtable on African Political Leadership 2023
THEME: Collaborative Political Leadership For Leapfroging Africa’s Development
Following multiple African stakeholders meetings, such as the UK – Africa Investment Summit, the US-Africa Leaders’ Summit, the New Africa-France Summit, among others, much is left to be ironed out on moving the continent forward through collaboration and network building. The Africa Union Agenda 2063 captures seven broad themes that align with the global mandate for sustainable development. However, ten years into implementing this agenda, African nations still struggle to meet targets in infrastructure building, peace and security and institutional reforms. As countries continue to rebuild economic stability post-COVID 19, it is important to propose a more proactive strategy for African nations to meet global and local targets through preparedness and a people-entered approach.
Historical representation of the African continent highlights the need for precision in action moving forward through well though collaborative action over the next decade that ensures stable institutions and progressive leadership. As African leaders continue to grapple with issues of trade, conflict, health and politics, a unified approach that highlights fostering bi/multi-lateral relations should be encouraged to promote efficient utilization of human and land resources, as well as accelerate Africa’s sustainability.
The Roundtable on African Political Leadership is therefore being put together by the African Leadership Organisation as a platform and unique opportunity to reflect on challenges experienced in the last decade and strategically position Africa to overcome its obstacles and contribute proactively through citizen and institutional support. The conference is an event that seeks to provide an opportunity for dialogue between African leaders, stakeholders, academia and policymakers, and civil society to align objectives and identify areas for collaboration, resolution and financing towards leapfrofing Africa’s socio-economic development.
It is therefore a platform for African leaders to accommodate thought-provoking and technical deliberations to shape continental transformation, build sustainable networks that highlight the prioritization of people in multi-sectorial advancement through four main groupings, such as Business and Infrastructure, human capital, Environmental sustainability and capacity building.
