Africa Resilience Forum - 2018

The Africa Resilience Forum was conceived to kick off an Africa region process of bringing together key partners to reflect on policies and approaches in support of African countries on issues of conflict prevention, peace and state building initiatives at regional and country-level.

About the second edition

More than 300 people were expected on Thursday, February 8 in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, to attend the opening of the second edition of the Africa Resilience Forum organised by the African Development Bank on the theme “Building Resilience at the Bottom of the Pyramid.”

The main addition of the 2018 edition, which will be held over two days, is the presentation of innovative and relevant solutions that contribute to the Bank's five strategic priorities, known as the High 5s, at a community level. About 15 businesses and start-ups will exhibit their products, which have been tested and are available commercially in the sub-region.

“This presentation will undoubtedly provide added value to our discussions. It will give all participants a very clear idea of the existing solutions that we can mobilise to tackle specific situations of fragility,” explained Sibry Tapsoba, Director of the Bank’s Transition Support Department.
