Sustainability: The concept and sustainable development policies in Sub-Saharan Africa

Théophile Azomahou, UNU-MERIT / Maastricht University

The concept of sustainability is multi-faceted. It interests researchers, policy and opinion makers, as well as organisations that contribute to favourable development conditions and improve the well-being of populations. Following the Millennium Development Goals, the post-2015 agenda and sustainable development targets are animating debates and nourishing minds to compete inventively to achieve truly sustainable development worldwide. This conference aims to trace the thread of sustainability for key development actors including researchers, decision makers, international organisations and civil society. We will explore normative approaches and the challenges of sustainable development and related policies for sub-Saharan Africa.

This presentation is part of ‘Les Conférences d’actualité du Centre Ouest Africain de Formation et d’Etudes Bancaires (COFEB)’, an event organised by the Central Bank of West African States (BCEAO).
