Future Africa Forum is bringing together the greatest thinkers across the African continent to research, implement and amplify great ideas that can lead to real and positive change across the entire continent.

We collect and analyze data, which aids our clients and partners in making decisions and coming up with bold and actionable ideas that have a lasting impact on the continent.

We amplify our solutions through our continental convening ability and network of policy makers, thought-leaders and partners.

Stronger, innovative and more resilient
economies and societies

We focus our efforts on three essential areas as we build the future of Africa alongside our partners; Economic Futures, Societal Futures and Resilient Futures.

A future that sees African economies thrive and become diverse, connected and secure.


A future that provides all communities with sufficient access to basic human rights.


A future where Africa is resilient and can effectively respond to societal and economic threats.
