The African Development Bank is organizing a Multi-Stakeholder Consultation Meeting on its draft Human Capital Development Strategy (2013-2017) in Pretoria, South Africa on 22 and 23 October 2012. Around 100 participants are expected from 12 Southern African countries:  Botswana, Lesotho , Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia,  Zimbabwe, Rwanda and Nigeria.

This consultative meeting will bring together government officials (ministries of education, health, gender, social protection, HIV/AIDS, Labor) as well as non-governmental organizations, development partners, youth, academia and the private sector, as well as the SADC Secretariat.

Mr. Ebrima Faal, Director of AfDB’s regional hub South Africa Resource Center (SARC) and Dr. Agnes Soucat, Director of AfDB’s Human Capital Development Strategy will facilitate the discussions.  

The purpose of the meeting is to gather input from regional stakeholders.  This meeting is one of many regional multi-stakeholder consultations that the Bank is organizing to provide information on its upcoming Human Capital Development Strategy and thus strengthen its work in education, health, social protection and other human development issues in Africa.
