This session will engage high-level leaders of Development Partner Institutions and select Ministers of Finance/Economic Planning to share their reflections and perspectives on ways to address poverty and inequality in Africa. The session will highlight Africa's key challenges and opportunities; offer some perspectives on the best ways to address poverty and inequalities with the SDG agenda as well as share experiences from countries that have significantly reduced poverty and inequalities. The format will be a 'Davos/CNN studio' style with each speaker making a maximum 7-minute intervention followed by discussion in the panel and with the audience. No power point presentations or formal speeches will be used. The intent is to foster an open debate and lively interaction.
