Webinar | Africa's next crisis


Dragonfly is hosting a webinar where we will look at Africa’s evolving risk landscape and the potential strategic implications of any future crises for businesses operating in the region. 

In the past year, the African continent has seen two successful coups and several attempted ones, along with the resumption of civil conflicts in Sudan and Mali, and acute food insecurity throughout many countries. As we head into 2024, the potential for further instability across this region will probably remain high. Structural issues and external headwinds are very likely to contribute towards a heightened risk of further civil conflicts, political dysfunction and increasing hardship within several states. 

 In this webinar, we will cover: 

  • Drivers of regime instability, along with the countries that are most vulnerable to coups 
  • Our outlook for terrorist insurgencies in Africa  
  • How poor governance and political dysfunction impact businesses 
  • The likelihood of economic hardship triggering acute civil unrest risks
  • How Africa is likely to be affected by changes to the external strategic environment, including China’s economic slowdown

The webinar will take place on Thursday, 12 October, at 1600hrs London / 1700hrs Paris / 1100hrs New York / 1900hrs Dubai. It will also include an opportunity for you to pose questions to our panel.
