The National Research, Development and Innovation (RDI) Coordination Summit is a collaborative endeavour to craft a robust framework for effectively coordinating research, development, and innovation activities. By engaging a wide array of stakeholders, including government officials, international entities, businesses, academia, and civil society, the summit seeks to address critical issues in RDI through thematic keynotes, panels and workshops.

Through co-creation, the summit will develop concrete action plans and establish sustained collaboration beyond the event, facilitated by technical working groups and a coordination steering committee. With a strong focus on sustainability and alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals, the summit underscores the pivotal role of key stakeholders and local NGOs in implementing outcomes, thereby fostering a transformative RDI ecosystem by 2030.
