By 2030, about 9 of 10 poor people in the world will be in Africa and life expectancy is likely to be lower than that in the rest of the world despite the progress made in recent years. Science, technology and innovation has been at the forefront of increasing access to food, health and education services, and in reducing gender inequality. All of which are important in improving the wellbeing of people.
This session will focus on the opportunities that science, technology and innovation offers to Africa to uplift the millions of the people out of poverty and hunger; offer quality, accessible and affordable health and education services as well as address all forms of gender inequality.
