Brazil Africa Forum
Brazil Africa Forum

Registration is now open for the Brazil Africa Forum 2019. With the main theme “Food security: path to economic growth”, BAF arrives in its 7th edition as one of the main events for the strengthening of relations between Brazil and the African continent. On November 12th and 13th at the Sheraton WTC in São Paulo, Brazil, some 300 representatives from governments, the private sector, academia and potential investors will exchange experiences, discuss value opportunities and promote knowledge.

According to the United Nations, world hunger seems to be on the rise again after a prolonged decline. Conflicts, droughts and disasters linked to climate change are among the main factors that have caused this reversal. In this scenario, Brazil Africa Forum is a thrust platform for dialogue between key stakeholders to enable a world where zero hunger is reached, following the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 of the UN.

The plenary sessions of the Forum will open discussions and favor the development of effective plans that are economically viable, socially just and ecologically correct. In addition, parallel events held simultaneously increase the possibilities for discussions and contacts between participants.

Among the names already confirmed as speakers are the President of the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), Benedict Oramah; the director of the World Food Program’s Centre for Excellence Against Hunger, Daniel Balaban; and the director of global practices and agriculture at the World Bank, Simeon Ehui.

In 2018, the Brazil Africa Forum gathered more than 200 participants in Salvador, Bahia, under the theme “Youth Empowerment: transformations to achieve sustainable development”.
