September 21, 2022 | New York, USA

International Forum On African–Caribbean Leadership (IFAL)

THEME: Redefining Trans-regional cooperation for Sustainable Peace and Development

Event Info
The inflationary pressures caused by the lingering pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine war, and current global geopolitical tensions have directly affected nations, especially African Caribbean countries’ ability to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, address economic challenges and its many threats to the peace and stability of the regions. As terrorism, transnational organized crime, drugs and human trafficking, failure of critical health infrastructures, and other challenges continue to impact on nations’ abilities to drive prosperity and advancements in achieving sustainable development in its economic, social and environmental dimensions, the need for strategic cooperation becomes imperative. In additional, leaders from developing nations have long given voice to standing systemic imbalances between the status of developing nations in global affairs and the rest of the more ‘developed’ especially in the areas of Defense and security cooperation, UN Security council membership, multilateral commitments towards addressing uneven impacts of climate change on the continent, among others. It is therefore important for African and Caribbean governments and leaders to reassess their roles in the international system with a view towards increasing partnerships and collaborations towards achieving peace, prosperity and sustainability for all.
