This dynamic program convened policy leaders working at the intersection of economic development, conflict prevention and security along with trailblazers from across the continent who are innovating in the face of COVID-19. This program spotlighted community-driven partnerships, self-sustaining solutions and impact-focused business initiatives fostering growth and stability across the Sahel, the Horn, and Great Lakes regions of Africa.
