Ousainou Ngum, “The Africa Rising Narrative & Partnering with the Private Sector”

NOTE: Ousainou Ngum is Executive Director of ACORD (Agency for Cooperation and Research in Development), a pan-African development organization working for social justice, with program offices in 17 countries /

The Africa Rising narrative has been adopted by government and non-government institutions with the goal contributing to structural transformation in Africa – which is guided by economic principles. Ousainou Ngum provides a critical analysis, from a civil society perspective, on the Africa Rising Narrative and the structures, drivers and determinants of inequalities and how inequalities are currently being addressed within the global context. In addition, he will touch upon how African civil society organizations are approaching partnerships with multi-national corporations.
