The third IAFS conference was held in India from October 26, 2015 to October 29, 2015 at Indira Gandhi Sports Complex, New Delhi with an aim to develop a new model of cooperation which takes into account Africa’s own aspirations for pan-African institutions and development programmes. Both India and Africa share common history of their struggle against colonialism and apartheid. With the IAFS summit, both the nations have been emerged jointly to combat the major threats such as climate change, international terrorism, illiteracy, poverty and hunger and also to accept the challenges of globalising world.
