2024 Supply Chain Research Summit

June 4 - June 6

On June 4-6, 2024, CARISCA will host the fourth annual Supply Chain Research Summit, in Accra, Ghana. The 2023 summit in Accra, Ghana, attracted 688 participants from 41 countries and featured more than 90 presenters.

The conference brings together academic and non-academic researchers and public, private and civil society organizations to create an ongoing dialogue addressing complex supply chain challenges. This year’s summit will once again adopt a hybrid model, allowing for both in-person and virtual attendance

The in-person venue is the Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City, Accra. Attendees and speakers may also participate virtually via Zoom.

The summit will take an in-depth look at how to build resilience in Africa’s supply chains for economic transformation. Resilient supply chains are vital for the success of businesses and societies.

Given the frequent and costly supply chain disruptions in Africa, increased investment in supply chain resilience on the continent is a pressing need. Current proposals for addressing these issues are primarily at the macro level and often lack solid grounding in theory-validated frameworks.

Furthermore, while studies on the drivers of supply chain resilience are growing rapidly, research specific to African supply chains remains limited.

Addressing these supply chain resilience themes requires a forum such as the 2024 Supply Chain Research Summit. There, supply chain scholars will brainstorm and share ideas on how Africa’s supply chains can be repositioned to drive the continent’s economic transformation agenda.
