About ICASuD

The International Conference on Africa’s Sustainable Development (ICASuD) is an annual interdisciplinary research-based and industry-focused conference that addresses key economic and societal development issues across the African continent and its partnering nations. Since 2021, the International Centre for Policy Research and Industry Linkages (ICEPRIL), a subsidiary of Shaveh Consulting has hosted ICASuD as an annual international conference. The conference serves as a regional knowledge-creating hub that focused on economic growth, poverty alleviation, food scarcity, sustainable livelihood, accelerated growth, and sustainable development among Africa nations.

ICASuD 2024 will bring researchers, practitioners, investors, and policy makers from universities, research institutions, global agencies, and other African and global organizations to identify new ways of supporting Africa’s sustainable development and to achieve stronger continental competitiveness in the region and its cross-continental partnerships.
