UMBAJA ECONOMIC FORUM 2022 

Democracy, economy and sustainability

UMBAJA ECONOMIC FORUM brings together NGOs, academics, officials, companies, and individuals to discuss and exchange knowledge, views and information on economy and sustainable development. 

The forum is exploring and investigating the interaction between building democracy, economy and sustainability , and parallelising it with the situation in Sudan, by anatomising the Sudanese revolution and the ongoing democratisation tries there.

We recognised that economy has been used as an important tool to stop the train of democracy building in Sudan following the Sudanese revolution.

Neighbouring countries to Sudan, countries in the Middle East and countries at international levels are using their economic supremacy against the will of the people of Sudan which is calling strongly and magnificently for freedom and democracy during its continuous revolution. So, a very important lesson that revolutionaries have learned during the last 3 years is that, people everywhere should think again about their economy as an important tool for their democracy building as well as an important tool for their sustained democratic system. 

The awareness about the relationship and the interaction between building democracy, economy and sustainability critically should be investigated, explored, understood and promoted.  

We are inviting outstanding and distinguished keynotes speakers to talk and discuss these important issues.
