2.     Leveraging international private and public financial system for Africa’s development – considering debt distress, the international financial architecture and tools (FDI, Special Drawing Rights, ODA, remittances, green financing, sovereign risk, etc.) and the extension of international capital markets to financing Africa’s development;

3.     Towards resilient recovery and sustainable development with a renewed financing model – considering the possibilities to build a more resilient development through social protection, inclusion of the informal sector in the financing framework of Africa’s development.
