African Forum – 100 innovations for sustainable development

France is organising the “African Forum – 100 innovations for sustainable development” that will gather, during the Elysée Summit For Peace and Security in Africa, African innovators who contribute to sustainable development, African entrepreneurship and inclusive growth, and help satisfy the basic needs of populations while offering solutions to social and environmental crises.

To this end, the Forum brings together the most outstanding financial, technical, technological, social, cultural and environmental innovations that serve enterprise, society and the individual, that reinforce the community and reduce the exclusion of the most vulnerable - notably women exclusion - and that lend themselves to a rapid dissemination.
