On 23 – 24 July 2019, Impact@Africa participated in the ANDE West Africa Regional Conference, held in Lagos, Nigeria, to further strengthen its presence in West Africa.

The Network organised a breakout session on “Catalyzing Impact Investing Towards the Achievement of Agenda 2063”, which confirmed Impact@Africa’s strategic positioning to pursue impact investment advocacy and capacity building across the continent to ensure the sector’s contribution to the African development agenda.

Impact@Africa also used the ANDE West Africa Regional Conference to conduct a soft launch of its Impact Investing in Africa Resource Portal, which is expected to be fully rolled out at the end of 2019. On the sidelines of the Conference, Impact@Africa also conducted a Facebook Live Session, which can be accessed here

As a follow up to the engagement, Impact@Africa will strengthen its collaboration with ANDE and other impact investment stakeholders especially with strong presence in West Africa.
