Cote d'Ivoire: Ivorian govt., AfDB, other partners organize confab on "Emergence of Africa"

Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire (PANA) - The Ivorian government and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), in partnership with the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group and the World Bank, will hold the second edition of the International Conference on the Emergence of Africa (ICEA 2017), from 28-30 March, 2017.

The conference, holding in Abidjan, is under the theme “The implementation of plans for emergence in Africa”.

According to the AfDB media outlet, the ICEA 2017 is designed as a platform of exchange to stimulate debate on the conditions for the emergence of African countries in the light of the process of structural transformation in emerging countries.

It said that two sub-themes, namely “Governance of Public Institutions” and “Structural, inclusive and sustainable transformation”, will also be discussed during a high-level panel, in workshops and side-events in the presence of Heads of State and Government, civil society organizations, research institutions (some 400 experts and State and non-State representatives) from 54 African, Asian, European and American countries.

The UNDP, the World Bank and the AfDB will present studies during the sessions, as well as the lessons learned from the processes of emergence, the governance of public institutions and structural, inclusive and sustainable transformation.

In addition to these main themes, 13 case studies based on the experiences of African countries will be discussed during the panels.

The first edition of the ICEA in 2015 ended with the adoption of the Abidjan Declaration on the Emergence of Africa, which recommended three important points, namely, the setting up of a Strategic Monitoring Centre, the organization, every two years, of a forum on good practices regarding emergence, and the establishment of a High-Level Committee to ensure the political follow-up of the said Declaration, as well as the creation of an Executive Secretariat.
