AfDB participates in Mo Ibrahim Governance Weekend in Marrakech

Event location: 
Marrakech, Morocco

Programme of Event: 

The Mo Ibrahim Foundation will hold its flagship event, the Ibrahim Governance Weekend, from 6 and 9 April 2017 in Marrakech, Morocco, under the High Patronage of His Majesty the King Mohammed VI. The Weekend will bring together a powerful coalition of organisations and individuals – from Africa and around the world – for an informed and frank dialogue that aims to strengthen governance and leadership in Africa.

This year’s event coincides with the Foundation’s celebration of 10 years of putting governance at the centre of Africa’s development discourse. The gathering will build on insights from the 2016 Ibrahim Index of African Governance: A Decade of African Governance and look at the next decade to set out a way forward for the continent.

Progressive leaders across politics, business, media and civil society from the continent will discuss the challenges of leadership and governance in Africa in the 21st century, and opportunities that can benefit the continent in the next decade.
