Description: Between now and 2030 Africa will either tilt towards a successful development model that embraces the different emerging strands of social and economic change in the continent or lapse into a crisis of governance, unmanageable demographic growth and social breakdown. Lord Malloch-Brown will deploy his many years of involvement in African development and politics to weigh which is the more likely outcome.

Lord Mark Malloch-Brown is a former Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations as well as previous Administrator of UNDP. He has also served in the British Cabinet and Foreign Office. Mr Brown is Co-chair of a new Global Commission on Business and Sustainable Development and a Senior Advisor at Eurasia.  He is active both in business and in the non-profit world and deeply involved in international affairs. 

Moderator : Jean-Louis Arcand, Professor of International Economics, The Graduate Institute, Geneva.
