END YEAR INTERNATIONAL REFLECTIVE CONFERENCE ‘EVIDENCE-DRIVEN SUSTAINABLE RECOVERY FROM GLOBAL INTRACTABLE CHALLENGES’ on 25th, 26th and 29th November 2021.
As the world reconfigures its efforts towards addressing the changing nature of global challenges such as health-related challenges, climate change, and others, sustainable recovery from these challenges has become a major agenda. In many developing contexts such as Africa, efforts to recover from global intractable challenges have been marred with a significant ‘rush’ to return to economic normalcy, leading to increased risk accumulation, greenhouse gas emission, health hazards, disaster risks among others. African countries are currently re-engaging the world in green recovery dialogue in line with the SDGs.
In the year 2021, the Africa Research and Impact Network has engaged more than 3000 research, policy and practice experts through over 30 Science-Policy dialogues aimed at discussing Africa’s options for tackling these global interactable challenges in a sustainable way. A number of insights have emerged from the dialogue series that needs to be consolidated for progressive action.
