AfDB hosts 2017 edition of Partnerships Conference

Event location: 
Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire

The African Development Bank (AfDB) is hosting a Partnerships Conference on April 6-7, 2017, in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. It will create a platform for the Bank to present its experience so far in scaling up investments and leveraging donor resources in the Bank’s High 5 priority areas identified as having the most development impact for its Ten Year Strategy 2013–2022.

Under the theme “Scaling up Partnerships and Leveraging Resources for Africa’s Transformation”, the Conference program will be structured around plenary sessions engaging all stakeholders and open panel discussions. The interactive format of this year’s Partnership Conference will provide an opportunity for the participants to share their perspectives, experiences, best practices and recommendations on how to achieve the High 5s in the rapidly changing development landscape. Furthermore, the discussions will explore innovative partnership opportunities and new business models as well as concrete synergies.

The Partnership Conference will:

  • Provide a platform for bringing together multilateral agencies, bilateral donors and non- sovereign entities (foundations, philanthropies, private sector, etc.) to engage in a strategic discussion;
  • Provide an overview of best practices, including possible roles for multilateral agencies, bilateral donors and non-sovereign entities.
