In our current inter-linked global security environment, new threats and Challenges have created an urgent need for imaginative new responses. At the fourth International Conference on African Culture and Development (ICACD 2011), we are providing the platform for people to share with the world their innovative ideas on how to build a safer world for our current and future generations.

Africa has experienced a lot of security breaches that has impacted on its development. Indeed security challenges remain a major factor impeding the continent’s development. From Sierra Leone and Liberia to Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) experts have indicated that it will take years to bring these economies back to pre-war times.

Even in countries not at war, tribal and religious tensions exist which sometimes explode with unpleasant consequences on the citizenry. Other security challenges such as armed robbery, violence against women and children are common and even the police men, soldiers and other security forces whose job supposedly is to protect the citizens have all too often been part of the problem.

There will be symposia on other issues such as food and water security in Africa, and the role of the youth in ensuring security on the continent.
