Co-operative Leaders Forum and ACMC-Midterm Review

The Alliance Africa Co-operative Ministerial Conference Midterm Review

The theme for this year is a culmination of a series of discussion we have had since 2014, and more specifically the profound one of 2016 which wholistically focused on Co-operatives in Africa Embracing Sustainable Development Goals. The idea was to unpack on a more general level, and raise awareness on what the SDGs are, and how co-operatives should wholly embrace these Goals and work, together with other stakeholders, towards achieving them. It has indeed been duly acknowledged in several strategic documents, including the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Financing for Development (FfD) Action Agenda that co-operatives will play a significant role in the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development goals.

The year 2017 marks the beginning of a vigorous analysis of each Goal, starting with Goal number 1, to see how co-operative enterprises interact with each Goal, hence settling on the theme ‘Propelling Co-operatives in Africa to End Poverty’. Propelling co-operatives in Africa entails strengthening them through empowerment actions, uniting them so that they work better together and re-positioning them to better engage in policy advocacy and other strategic engagements so as to work towards ending poverty in Africa.

The objectives of this meeting is to bring together government officials and co-operative leaders to deliberate on how they can address best the first global goal through repositioning co-operatives in Africa to address issues of climate change and take advantage of the strategic partnerships in existence. The meeting also will take a review of the progress made since the last Africa Co-operative Ministerial Conference in Gaborone Botswana since the year 2015.....Read More
