What does equitable and sustainable economic transformation look like in Africa? Structural Economic Transformation in the context of the AU Vision 63 and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals
11th – 12th March 2016, UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA)
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
This two-day round-table dialogue in Addis Ababa, hosted by UNECA, and organised by Third World Network – Africa, Tax Justice Network – Africa with the support and partnership of Christian Aid and CAFOD, brought together Africa-based thought leaders (including researchers, activists, NGOS, networks and farmer organisations) to discuss economic transformation in the context of Agenda 2030 and the sustainable development goals. Findings and roundtable documents can be found here.
Through this event we initiated a dialogue between UNECA and African civil society on the African economic transformation agenda to come up with strategies for an ongoing critical engagement of African civil society in the discourse and implementation of the transformation agenda.
This was an opportunity to share current research with other thought-leaders and key institutions for feedback and triangulation and to enrich participants’ work and positions on this topic. This was also an opportunity to network and build relationships with the aim of identifying key issues and scoping the possibility of collaboration.
