Delegates from across the continent have Monday converged in Kinshasa, thumb http://cuencahighlife.com/wp-admin/includes/comment.php DRC for the 2015 African Economic Conference (AEC), cost http://delightstudio.co.rs/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-upgrader.php to address poverty and inequality in the region.

Jointly organized by the African Development Bank (AfDB), approved the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the three-day African Economic Conference (AEC) 2015, has been held under the theme: “Addressing Poverty and Inequality in the Post 2015 Development Agenda”.

Africa is currently on the move, but inequality constitutes an impediment to its efforts to reduce poverty.

The continent has made rapid progress in increasing the proportion of seats held by women in national parliament than in other regions.

According to reports, women’s share of non-agricultural employment also rose modestly in recent years.

This performance, however, lags behind other developing regions. Access to safe drinking water has improved, but sanitation is still a challenge.

“The ratio of girls to boys enrolled in primary schools continues to improve in many African countries, but the transition of girls and boys between different levels of education requires urgent attention,” a report from AfDB shows.

Addressing these challenges is therefore critical to achieving inclusive growth and sustainable development.

The AEC 2015 will provide an opportunity to assess the impact of current inclusive growth strategies by presenting the latest empirical evidence on poverty, inequality and human development in Africa.

It will also provide room for critical thinking on the way forward, more importantly on how to plan and implement Post 2015 Development Agenda.

Since its inception in 2006, the AEC has served as a platform for knowledge-sharing among AfDB, ECA and UNDP.

It is in recognition of the prominent role of knowledge, and the three institutions’ quest for contributing to reducing the proportion of Africans in extreme poverty, that this year’s edition will address poverty and inequality.

FDC mobiliser Samuel Makokha said the party expects over 50,000 people to fill the stadium.
