About Us

AfricaLive reports from the intersection of business and ecological conservation.

AfricaLive publishes articles, interviews, and analysis in relation to the role of business and trade in Africa’s sustainable development. Our platform is built in collaboration with the continent’s leading universities, development organisations, research councils, private sector businesses and selected government agencies.

The AfricaLive mission is to connect and inspire leaders working towards the sustainable development of the continent.

The problems facing our planet are complex and require the collaboration of all stakeholders in society including governments, civil society, academia, investors and the private sector. AfricaLive brings those able to affect positive change together on one platform.



The Special Report section organises reporting on subjects such as land regeneration, forests, conservation and water. Here you will find recent news and analysis, research from Africa’s academics, and interviews with industry leaders. Following the development of each report will provide you access to a network of professionals able to foster economic development alongside environmental regeneration.

Our content is syndicated across a wide network of African focused publications. Our articles are regularly republished on an average of over 250 websites included global and pan-African titles such as Forbes, AfricaNews, CNBC Africa, Bloomberg, and Engineering News and also reach the leading print publications of Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and South Africa. 



To highlight partnership opportunities, we are building content hubs in collaboration with the leading universities and companies operating on the continent. You will also find these within each special report section.

AfricaLive will regularly publish case studies and opportunities related to land regeneration, green infrastructure, rural development and conservation.



Have doubts about how business and the environment can thrive together? Or looking to play a role in building sustainable projects in your country?

Sign up to the newsletter at the foot of the page to receive stories and case studies of the projects shaping a sustainable future for the continent (no more than once per week). We focus on how projects are funded, how the required stakeholders are brought together, how conflicts are resolved, and how communities are impacted.

By publishing educational content, AfricaLive will influence media and business decision-makers on the role of the private sector in sustainable development.

The environmental, economic and social pressures facing Africa are growing. We need to act big and act now. There is good news, however. From smallholder sustainable farming to green infrastructure megaprojects, there are opportunities for all organisations to make a positive impact.

Let’s get to work.
