Tokyo International Conference on African Development

-

- Advertisment -

The Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD) brings together African leaders and a wide range of stakeholders to promote inter- national partnership to support African development priorities.

Since 1993, TICAD has played a critical role in raising global awareness of African development needs and providing strategic leadership on development assistance to Africa. For example, the 1998 Tokyo Agenda for Action proposed concrete human  development targets and made important contributions to the formulation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Reflecting the growing engagement of a broad base of stakeholders, TICAD grew from a forum for dialogue into a platform  for action, facilitating a wide spectrum of programmes to accelerate economic growth, human security and progress toward the MDGs across Africa.

TICAD V adopted the Yokohama Declaration, which is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the African Agenda 2063. It provides a critical linkage between African and global development agendas.

Attracting an increasing number of stakeholders, including the private sector, TICAD VI is expected to further catalyse international partnerships to accelerate African development.
