Sophie Lemaître, responsible for the Illicit Financial Flows programme, will represent Sherpa at the Ninth African Development Forum. She will give a talk about the theme “Illicit financial flows and governance of natural resources” on 15 October.
The theme of the Ninth African Development Forum (AFD IX) is “Innovative financing for Africa’s transformation”. The Forum seeks to enhance Africa’s capacity to explore innovative financing mechanisms as real alternatives for financing transformative development in Africa. It will aim to forge linkages between, on the one hand, the importance of mainstreaming resource mobilisation and the reduction of trade barriers into economic, institutional and policy frameworks, and on the other, advancing the post-2015 development goals.
