    Increasing UK investment in Africa

    Increasing UK investment in Africa

    The UK is an important investor across Africa. Projected population and economic growth across the continent, as well as a high regard for British products, heighten the prospects of future UK investment. 

    Against the backdrop of Brexit and growing momentum over the African Continental Free Trade Area, we bring together representatives from government, research and the private sector to consider how the UK and Africa can work together to secure mutually beneficial trade and investment.

    Using key findings from ODI and the African Trade Policy Centre country deep dives on Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and South Africa, we discuss the opportunities and challenges to boosting UK investment in Africa with the aim of contributing to the development objectives of the continent.

    Moving away from aid: lessons from country experiences

    Moving away from aid: lessons from country experiences

    Over the past decade, several developing economies have achieved strong and sustained economic growth, moving them up the income per capita ladder and away from aid. Some of these countries are expected to graduate from official development assistance (ODA).

    What can we learn from these countries that have started or completed the transition from aid to ensure that their development outcomes are sustained and expanded? What type of support would countries in transition from aid need from their development partners?

    Using key findings and lessons from ODI – in partnership with GIZ – case study research on Botswana, Chile, Mexico and the Republic of Korea, this webinar will seek to address these questions and shed light on the opportunities and challenges for countries managing the transition from aid and for development partners seeking to support them.

    Challenging the humanitarian status quo: a gender equality revolution

    Challenging the humanitarian status quo: a gender equality revolution

    Nearly 132 million people worldwide are in need of assistance and protection due to conflict, persecution and disasters. Women and girls are disproportionately affected by crises, and are at higher risk of violence, abuse, neglect and discrimination. The specific humanitarian needs of women and girls are often inadequately identified nor addressed in humanitarian responses by governments and agencies. They are also at far greater risk of losing their livelihoods and are exposed to a heightened risk of gender-based violence.

    A targeted response towards the needs of women and girls must go beyond protection and include meaningful inclusion and participation in all stages of decision-making, from the local to the most senior levels. We must actively challenge the humanitarian system to work better and create more spaces and initiatives that allow women and girls to realise their potential and contribute to the solutions they need to prosper. Evidence shows that when women are included in humanitarian action their entire community benefits, with a cascading effect for generations to come.

    Delivering the HPG Annual Lecture this year is Her Royal Highness Princess Sarah Zeid of Jordan. Princess Sarah is a UNHCR Patron for Maternal and Newborn Health and member of UNHCR’s Advisory Group on Gender, Forced Displacement, and Protection; Special Advisor to the World Food Programme on Maternal & Child Health and Nutrition; and lead convener of the Roadmap to Accelerate Progress for Every Newborn in Humanitarian Settings 2020–2025. In this lecture, Princess Sarah will make a passionate plea to change the current humanitarian system and put women and girls at the centre of programmes, policies and investments.

    Booming Africa: young women and new digital societies

    Booming Africa: young women and new digital societies

    By 2050 more than half of Africa’s population will be under 25 years old. The booming population is posing challenges to African countries to meet the educational and employment needs of young people. Governments and organisations need to think creatively if they are to address these challenges. Investing more on gender-sensitive programmes and considering the potential of digital technologies could develop opportunities for youth on the continent.

    Drawing on research from the Youth Forward initiative and the Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence programme (GAGE) we address two questions: how can we create better educational and job opportunities for youth – especially young women – in rural and urban Africa? And what role can digital technologies play in this process?

    Breaking harmful gender norms in health practices and systems

    Breaking harmful gender norms in health practices and systems

    We cannot wait any longer to shift gender norms, reduce inequalities and set the course for good health for generations to come. Addressing gender inequality and restrictive gender norms benefits the health and development of all genders and is essential for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, protecting human rights for all.

    With the global health community working to ensure healthy lives and promoting well-being, attention is being turned to the barriers of achieving this goal–namely discriminatory and harmful gender norms embedded in health practices and health systems. In partnership with The Lancet and Stanford University, we discuss research on how gender equality improves overall wellbeing and what we know about best practices for addressing harmful and restrictive gender norms to improve health outcomes.

    This event will highlight the recently published, Lancet Series on Gender Equality, Norms and Health and generate recommendations and advice for practitioners, researchers and policy makers working on gender, norms and health.

    Chair:
    Caroline Harper – Head of Gender Equality and Social Inclusion, ODI

    Speakers:
    Richard Horton – Editor-in-Chief, The Lancet

    Sarah Hawkes – Director of the Centre for Gender and Global Health and Professor of Global Public Health, University College London (UCL)

    Olivia Burns – Customer Experience Lead, Prostate Cancer UK

    Veronica Magar – Team leader for Gender, Equity and Human Rights Mainstreaming, World Health Organization (WHO)

    Strengthening the voice and agency of disadvantaged adolescents

    Strengthening the voice and agency of disadvantaged adolescents

    Adolescents are a driving force for development. If we are to deliver on the 2030 Agenda and ‘leave no one behind’, young people must be provided with the tools needed to reach their full potential. Particularly those who are disadvantaged and often face high levels of stigma, discrimination and exclusion.

    In commemoration of Universal Children’s Day and the 30th Anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, we discuss ways to develop and strengthen the voice and agency of disadvantaged adolescents. We draw on recent Gender and Adolescence: Global Evidence (GAGE) participatory research findings on adolescent refugees, adolescents with disabilities and married adolescent girls.
