We are excited to bring back the Africana Conference to Fletcher! The 2023 Africana Conference at Fletcher will bring together leading African policymakers, scholars, politicians, activists and businesspeople to engage in conversation on the future of the continent.

This year’s conference will be held under the theme “African Futures: Making Growth Work.” Africa’s population is set to double by 2050, reaching nearly 2.5 billion. This demographic change will be accompanied by economic, technological, urban and socio-political transformation with far-reaching implications for growth, human development and sustainability on the continent.

How can Africa’s peoples, governments, and institutions ensure that their countries are pursuing the right policies to generate economic opportunities for their growing populations, and better prepare for the challenges that will accompany the population boom?
