Which long-term trends will have the most impact on Africa’s future? Are security developments more important than economics? Or will demographics or technology trump all other factors?

 

African Futures and Innovation at the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) will debate its trajectories with those of the Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre in the UK’s Ministry of Defence. Speakers will also assess whether Africa can meet key targets of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

 

The discussions will cover dimensions related to human development, security, economics, governance, technology and the role of the private sector with a time horizon to 2030 and beyond.

 

This event is co-hosted with the Development, Concepts and Doctrine Centre, UK Ministry of Defence.

Southern Africa Food Lab’s System Shift Summit

The South African food system is in crisis. What would it take for stakeholders from across the food system to shift the trajectory, with the goal meeting the existing and future challenges of feeding our nation? How do we build on current efforts, and what new opportunities are emerging?

The Southern Africa Food Lab is convening a leadership summit that will bring together a diverse group of leaders concerned with the failing food system in South Africa. At this summit, we will identify the potential levers for large-scale positive shifts, and identify opportunities for creative and collaborative responses.
