2012 Rockefeller Foundation Africa Regional Office Partners Convening
15 August 2012 - 18 August 2012


FANRPAN, represented by Mr Lufingo W. Mwamakamba, attended the 2012 Rockefeller Foundation Africa Regional Office Partners Convening.

The theme for the meeting was Catalyzing and Driving Change through African Innovation.

The convening brought together the Foundation Initiative grantees and other leaders in the development space to discuss, debate and reflect on emergent development issues in the continent and possible interventions.

Discussions centered on drivers to catalyze change and innovation for Africa's continued growth and development.

On the eve of the Foundation's 100 years of existence in 2013, the convening focused on identifying how innovative solutions for Africa's development can be applied in new and interesting ways to promote the wellbeing of humanity around the world.

Innovation is the hallmark of The Rockefeller Foundation's century of ground-breaking initiatives. It has characterized the Foundation's most compelling and life-saving work, from the development of a Nobel-prize winning vaccine for yellow fever in the 1930s, to the agriculture techniques pioneered by Rockefeller scientists that enabled the Green Revolution in the 1960s.
