An international conference organized by the Master of Public Administration Program, in collaboration with The African & Caribbean Business Council.
While other regions of the world are making strides in improving the living standards of their citizens, Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is still trapped in poverty with more than 40% of its 600 million people living below the internationally recognised absolute poverty level of US$ 1 per day. Several reports highlight corruption as one of the institutional and systemic problems responsible for keeping million of Africans under absolute poverty. In fact, the 2008 Transparency International report demonstrates a direct link between corruption and failure of societal institutions to effectively achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in SSA. It is a serious concern that the goals of halving poverty in SSA by the year 2015 from the level of 1990 will not be met.
