RES4Africa team participates to the 6th EU‐Africa Business Forum (EABF) aimed at increasing investments with development impact in Africa.

With its overarching theme being “investing in job creation for youth”, the Business Forum looks at the challenges and opportunities for investment in Africa along four strategic priorities of the EU-Africa cooperation, such as renewable energy, agribusiness, infrastructure and the digital economy, and aims to provide solutions, particularly for the growing number of young and female entrepreneurs.

Female and youth entrepreneurship are considered a cross-cutting theme in all discussions in the Forum and are also subject to a specific thematic session with a strong focus on ensuring decent work and quality jobs for young people and women.
