Cross-country Policy Learning Event
April 13 @ 08:00 – 17:00 UTC+1
On behalf of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET) carried out a policy-oriented research on a New Policy Agenda for Africa (NPA) as part of the process of learning lessons from continental development experiences and as a key input to the 8th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD8) in August 2022. As part of this work, ACET organized case studies in Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tunisia, and Zambia. This research has produced country-specific and cross-country findings and policy recommendations to help African countries transform while building resilient economies in the post-COVID-19 era. These recommendations will be discussed at TICAD8, co-organized by the Government of Japan (GOJ), the African Union Commission (AUC), the United Nations Office of the Special Adviser on Africa (UNOSAA), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the World Bank (WB), and African governments. This cross-country policy learning event will convene government policy makers, experts, representatives from the business community and civil society, and development partners from the six countries covered in the report to exchange views and draw lessons to enhance economic transformation and build resilience, centered around the findings of ACET’s and partners’ research. The discussions during this event will provide an opportunity for collective learning, and improve the NPA report.
