THEME:  Redefining Trans-regional Cooperation for Sustainable Peace and Development
VENUE: New York Hilton Midtown, 1335 Avenue of the Americas, New York USA
DATE: 21 September 2022

EVENT BRIEF

The inflationary pressures caused by the lingering pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine war, and current global geopolitical tensions have directly affected nations, especially African Caribbean countries’ ability to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, address economic challenges, and its many threats to the peace and stability of the regions. As terrorism, transnational organized crime, drugs, and human trafficking, failure of critical health infrastructures, and other challenges continue to impact nations’ abilities to drive prosperity and advancements in achieving sustainable development in its economic, social, and environmental dimensions, the need for strategic cooperation becomes imperative. In addition, leaders from developing nations have long given voice to standing systemic imbalances between the status of developing nations in global affairs and the rest of the more ‘developed’, especially in the areas of Defense and security cooperation, UN Security council membership, multilateral commitments towards addressing uneven impacts of climate change on the continent, among others. It is therefore important for African and Caribbean governments and leaders to reassess their roles in the international system to increase partnerships and collaborations towards achieving peace, prosperity, and sustainability for all.

In light of this, the 8th edition of the International Forum on Africa-Caribbean Leadership would be a platform that will connect African and Caribbean leaders, local and international companies, institutional partners, and all relevant stakeholders to reassess its place in global peace, prosperity, and development architecture, as well as push forward with commitments and partnerships to power the social, economic and environmental sustainability of the regions.
