Conference Theme

The Conference theme is Public Procurement and the Sustainable Development Goals in Africa: Opportunities towards 2030.

The conference will examine the role of public procurement to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals; using public procurement to address gender equality and the climate emergency in Africa; the integration between procurement and human rights issues such as modern slavery; as well as issues that present an obstacle to sustainable development such as corruption, weak institutional capacity and poor governance in the procurement context – all from a regulatory perspective.
