Sub Themes

Health

LBIIW will seek to review the region's public health response to covid, discuss the role of technology in the fight against covid, showcase and promote adoption of local health innovations and solutions that can be adopted nationwide in future pandemics

Health innovation are long-established traditions in many counties. They are generally designed to jointly review the implementation of national health sector plans or to assess sector performance and to agree on actions to address constraints in implementation or to improve performance.

Youth Economic Empowerment & Future of Work

To explore what the future of work would be post-covid, the new skills sets young people need to acquire now and how traditional employers should prepare for the new normal to remain competitive and sustainabl

We strive to do this by addressing their situation and then take action in order to improve their access to resources and transform their consciousness through their beliefs, values, and attitudes

Strategic Partnerships and Governance

LBIIW takes note of much needed synergies for the development of the regional ecosystem during pandemics. As such the week will provide and facilitate formation of strategic relations and initiate partnerships for the economic recovery and resilience of the region.

With relation between two commercial enterprises, usually formalized by one or more business contracts. A strategic partnership will usually fall short of a legal partnership entity, agency, or corporate affiliate relationship.

Enhancing food security

We are seeking to discover, showcase and promote innovations and new value chains that Agri-preneurs can adopt to thrive/be resilient during pandemics.

Coming up with long term innovative strategies for economic response and recovery for SMEs during and after emergencies.

Local Manufacturing

LLBIIW will embrace and promote home grown solutions through local manufacturing towards addressing gaps that exist in disrupted global supply value chains during pandemics.

Factory production has contributed little to economic growth because of poor linkages with local markets and overwhelming reliance on imports.
