The 2015 conference theme of "Generation Next: Young People Shaping Africa's Future" put the spotlight on youth as a lens to examine issues ranging from education to human rights to gender equity to the post-2015 agenda.   
Over 40 grantmaking organizations from seven countries were represented. 
Africa has the world's youngest population and the term "youth" covers a wide age range from 15 to 35.  While acknowledging the diversity among communities and across African countries, unemploymentaccess to education and health caresocial equality andengagement in the political process emerged from the discussions as cross-cutting concerns that must be addressed to leverage the potential of Africa's current and next generation. 
Philanthropy has a role to play and the conference ended with a challenge to funders to engage in the same intentional collaboration and partnership they so often encourage the organizations they support to do.

Summary

TrustAfrica, in partnership with Open Society Initiative of Southern Africa (OSISA), is currently accepting proposals under the auspices of the “Assessing the extent and impact of illicit financial flows in key economic sectors in Southern Africa” project. The project seeks to address the problem of substantial knowledge gaps on illicit financial flows in Southern Africa. It specifically covers the lack of in-depth sectorial research, data and analysis on the patterns, dynamics, actors, channels, magnitude, and development impacts of illicit financial flows in the sub-region. The ultimate goal of the project is to expand the data, knowledge and analysis available to advocates and policymakers, and thereby prepare the ground for synergy-based communities of practice that can provide effective responses to curb illicit financial flows from Southern Africa. The initiative also seeks to contribute to strengthening the capacity of researchers and policy advocates. The project will also contribute to sharpening the methodologies in the study of illicit financial flows in Southern Africa.

The purpose of this Call for Proposal (CFP) is to solicit proposals from various organizations, individuals and/or consortiums to undertake in-depth research studies on how resources are being illicitly transferred in the following sectors:

1)    Agriculture

2)    Mining

3)    Wildlife and Tourism

Mark the date: April 21 - 22, 2015
