The UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative in Djibouti Mrs. Valerie Cliff participated in the TICAD 6 Summit Meeting in Nairobi, Kenya from 27-28 August 2016.  Mrs. Cliff participated on behalf of the UNDP Regional Bureau for Arab States, and the RBAS UNDP Country Offices located on the African Continent (Somalia, Sudan, Djibouti, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, and Libya).

By all accounts, the TICAD summit meeting was enormously successful – bringing together 36 Heads of State and Heads of Government and high level delegations from all 54 countries of Africa as well as His Excellency the Prime Minister of Japan Mr. Shinzo Abe and a large delegation from the Government of Japan and CEOs from the Japanese private sector.  The President of the Republic of Djibouti, His Excellency Mr. Ismail Omar Guelleh, headed the Djiboutian delegation to Nairobi. The President of Kenya, His Excellency Mr. Uhuru Kenyatta hosted the Summit Meeting and addressed the meeting on several occasions.

Many economic and social issues were covered during the two day summit meeting that are well captured in the Nairobi Declaration and the Nairobi Action Plan. The highlights included the numerous and invaluable public-private partnerships that exist between Japan and African countries. Speaker after speaker highlighted the special nature of the Japan-Africa relationship that focuses on building long-term relationships between private sector companies from Japan and local counterparts, both public and private in Africa; the focus on human resource development and training that the Government of Japan actively supports ; and the leading edge technology and high-quality of technical support provided by Japanese companies doing business in Africa.  Japanese companies provide 300,000 jobs for African citizens across the continent.

In addition to private sector development, TICAD 6 focused on Japan’s key role in supporting access to health services, and the goal of Universal Health coverage which the Government of Japan is actively advocating for. 

Also at the TICAD Conference, UNDP’s Administrator Helen Clark launched the African Human Development Report 2016, which focuses on Accelerating Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in Africa, with a keynote speech from Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta.
