About this Event

Sustainable development is at the forefront of policymaker’s agendas across African countries. Different endogenous and exogenous drivers shape the milieu in which the continent’s development challenges need to be addressed. In the African context, the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), offers enormous opportunities to promote intra-continental trade while promising extensive welfare benefits. However, to achieve these benefits, governments need to look beyond traditional infrastructure financing models to enable the free flow of goods, services, capital and people across the continent. At the same time, these new opportunities and modalities need to be explored within the context of climate change and the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR).

The South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) continuously explores some of these key policy challenges facing the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and continent at large. By undertaking evidence-based research, SAIIA introduces new and innovative ways of addressing them. This conference will bring together policymakers, business and researchers to present its latest research on these challenges and to facilitate a dialogue around policy options.
