“ ACBF is widely open to the media as we believe that the media has an important role to play in disseminating knowledge in capacity development. ”

2016 Annual Governance Weekend

Marrakech, Morocco
7 Apr 2017
09 Apr 2017

The Executive Secretary will be attending the annual Ibrahim Governance Weekend, which is the flagship event of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, held every year in a different African capital city.

This three day event convenes prominent African and Africa-focused political and business leaders, representatives from civil society, multilateral and regional institutions as well as Africa’s major international partners to identify specific policy challenges and discuss priorities for action.

The conversation is extended to a wider audience through music, art and sport at major public events showcasing some of Africa’s brightest talent.

A whole day is dedicated to the Ibrahim Forum where a key issue for Africa is discussed and specific policy challenges and priorities for action identified. A comprehensive Facts & Figures research document is compiled in advance by the Foundation as the basis for an informed and constructive debate.

ACBF's financial support to our institution has helped us a great deal. We look forward to continued partnership with ACBF in pursuit of capacity building in STEM for Africa's sustainable development.
