This year’s African Leadership Forum (ALF) will engage high-level decision-makers and people of influence to deliberate on the prospect of increased, improved, and effective financing for Africa’s transformation. The Forum will be convened in Kigali, Rwanda from 3 – 4 August by H.E. Benjamin Mkapa, former President of the United Republic of Tanzania. The organisation will be managed by UONGOZI Institute. It will feature an opening plenary, with keynote address by H.E. Paul Kagame, President of the Republic of Rwanda, as well three closed thematic sessions.

The ALF 2018 aims to:

  • Understand the current and emerging context for financing Africa’s development;
  • Share successes and failures in national, regional, and continental attempts to address specific financing challenges;
  • Provide recommendations for critical areas where interventions will lead to unlocking increased financing for Africa’s development.
