FANRPAN's CEO, Dr Lindiwe Majele Sibanda participates at the African Development Forum (ADF VII) held in Addis Ababa from October 10 to 15, 2010.

This very important conference will be the seventh in the series of biannual Forum jointly initiated since 1999 by the Bank, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and the African Union Commission (AUC) to address the challenges of development in Africa and to establish a consensual African-driven development agenda on the continent. It is Africa's premier multi-stakeholder platform for dialogue to build consensus and mobilize partnerships for Africa's development.

The Bank is not just participating but co-sponsoring the Forum which will bring together eminent personalities, including Heads of State and Government, representatives of Governments, public and private sector operators, civil society organizations, bilateral and multilateral development agencies etc. The theme of ADF VII will be "Acting on Climate Change for Sustainable Development in Africa."

As you know, African economies rely heavily on climate sensitive sectors such as agriculture, fisheries, forestry, other natural resources and tourism. The Forum will therefore discuss climate change from people's and sustainable development perspectives, having in mind issues of wide spread poverty and human development in Africa. The objective of the Forum is not only to raise awareness but also to mobilize effective commitment and actions at all levels on the part of all stakeholders and partners to effectively mainstream climate change concerns into development policies, strategies, programmes and practices in Africa.
