Poverty is multidimensional, and both a root cause and a symptom of the cycle of underdevelopment on the African continent. As such, any proposed solution for eradicating the menace should be multi-sectoral and inclusive in every sense of the word.

We have an opportunity to create sustainable systems of development when the government, especially at the local level, and private organizations work together to engage the minds of local residents in generating ideas and solutions for problems that are specific to them. There is a gap between solutions and recipients that need to be addressed for progress to be sustained.

The Panel will discuss the merits and gaps of current poverty eradication efforts, highlighting the opportunities that true community-centred development provides, and discussing the frameworks for solutions that are multi-sectoral and inclusive in every sense of the word. The key focus of these opportunities will be the human resource with conversations on how they can be adequately inspired and equipped to become the solution providers for their own specific problems. The panel will also highlight methods and processes for engaging private financiers and the government for support, as they have experience and success in doing this.

We want the audience to leave with a different perspective on bringing development to vulnerable communities while shifting their ambitions from only personal advancement to collective and collaborative progress. They will learn how to see opportunities for communal development in the midst of challenges, while also understanding new methods of engaging the government, especially at the local level, understanding their roles and holding them accountable to community engagement and development.
