Side Event at the Sixth Tokyo International Conference for African Development (TICAD VI)

Contributing to the effective implementation of the 2030 agenda and the Africa Agenda 2063 – the Future We Want for Africa: towards the Second High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation

Date: 26 August, 2016

Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Venue: Kenya Revenue Authority, Times Tower Building, Nairobi

To implement the 2030 Agenda and Africa’s Agenda 2063, the domestic private sector as well as international private sector actors can become the main engine of inclusive growth and wealth creation. Private sector engagement through mechanisms such as the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (GPEDC), will be essential to ensure that “billions” of dollars of existing development resources help attract, mobilize and channel “trillions” of dollars of investment necessary to leave no-one behind. 

The Government of Kenya, NEPAD and the Kenya Private Sector Alliance invite you to Save the Date for an important discussion that will focus on the growing contributions of the private sector to the pillars of TICAD VI. Taking the opportunity of the presence of African leaders and development practitioners at TICAD VI in Nairobi, the event will aim to promote the triple bottom of social, environmental and economic sustainability in the context of the African Union’s Agenda 2063 and the 2030 Agenda.

The event will draw perspectives from a wide range of development stakeholders, and feature initial remarks by high-level panellists, followed by an interactive round-table discussion. Inputs are expected from Kenya, NEPAD Agency, African Union Commission, East African Community, among others.

The invitation is for those attending TICAD VI. Please RSVP to info@effectivecooperation.org by 19 August, 2016.
