Pan-African Conference on Inequalities to take place in Accra in April

Accra – A 3-day international conference on the theme Pan-African Conference on Inequalities in the Context of Structural Transformation will take place in Accra from April 28- 30, 2014. About 200 participants will discuss how the “…global development framework and the character of the transformation process have likely contributed to growing disparities…”. The conference is expected to forge linkages between the ongoing African developmental debates and the discussions on a post-MDGs development framework and contribute to the African agenda on inequalities in the context of the Africa 2063 agenda.

The Accra conference is a follow up to the Global Consultation on Inequalities, hosted jointly by the Government of Denmark and the Government of Ghana in February last year in the context of the Post-2015 development agenda consultation process.
