Webinar on Skills for Economic diversification
Skills for Economic diversification in Central Africa: challenges and opportunities
Friday, May 29, 2020




This webinar will be the first of a series of interactive meetings leading up to the 36th session of the Intergovernmental Committee of Senior Officials and Experts (ICE) for Central Africa to be held in Yaoundé, Cameroon, this year under the theme: "Skills for economic diversification in Central Africa". This session follows on from the debates of the last three ICEs devoted to the central role of industrialization and economic diversification in Central Africa, of which the Douala Consensus of September 2017 constitutes a major step.

The webinar of 29 May 2020 is designed to have key stakeholders to share ideas on the Subregion’s challenges and opportunities with regard to concrete skills-building for economic diversification in order to identify salient issues for systematic inclusion on the agenda of the 36th session of the ICE. Specifically, the webinar aims to: (i) whip-up interest among key actors on the central thrust of the 36th ICE; (ii) get feedback on the overall theme of the ICE and more ideas on how to render the session productive and beneficial for Central African countries; (iii) get inputs that can be used to enrich the background study for the ICE and (iv) build beneficial partnerships for skills development for economic diversification in Central Africa.
