A warmer world and unsustainable exploitation of natural resources are forcing Africa to question its development paradigm and trajectory.

Professor Alexander Adum Kwapong Lectures – Nature Speaks- provide a space for independent and bold thinking on the management of Africa's natural resources.

It features a cross-section of eminent thought leaders who believe passionately in Africa’s transformation potential and who sit at several vantage points ranging from technology, infrastructure, climate change, minerals and extractives and natural resources.

These leading thinkers will delve deep into issues and challenge conventional wisdom and narratives with innovative and dynamic ideas to offer thought-provoking insights and practical solutions that will lead Africa towards a natural-resource driven, inclusive and sustainable development pathway.


Come and listen to these exceptional speakers as they deliver their inspirational talks and seize the opportunity to engage directly with them.
