Developing urban and rural areas sustainably – two of Switzerland’s priorities in Africa – were at the focus of the SDC’s Annual Conference in Berne/Switzerland last June.

More than 1,200 participants – specialists, politicians, representatives of UN agencies, NGOs and civil society – attended the Annual Swiss Development Cooperation Conference SDC/SECO in Berne end of June 2018.

The topic chosen for the conference was the work of SDC and the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) in Africa and their priorities for the continent in terms of the sustainable development of urban and rural areas.

After the official opening, the first panel addressed rural development in Chad’s seed sector, whereas another one focused on urban development in the townships of South Africa.

Furthermore, the partners of the SDC – Helvetas, the International Services of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ IS), the Centre for Agriculture and Bioscience International (CABI), Caritas, Swiss Aid, Swiss Contact and Biovision, amongst others, presented their projects at stands.
