African Drone Forum 2020 and Lake Kivu Challenge

Kigali, Rwanda, February 7, 2020: The African Drone Forum (ADF) 2020 was officially opened by His Excellency Paul Kagame, President of the Republic of Rwanda on February 5, 2020. The ADF was organized in collaboration with the Government of Rwanda, World Bank Group and partners including UK AID and the World Economic Forum. The event explored what a future unbound by surface infrastructure could look like, how drone technology can promote development and increase access to essential services and opportunities for the African continent.

Showcasing leading drone innovations, ADF 2020 aimed to facilitate a path towards harmonized airspace regulation that can foster a commercially viable Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS or drone) market in Africa. Consisting of a Symposium, an Expo, a series of Flying Competitions, and a drone business challenge, an estimated 800 participants from 50 countries attended the African Drone Forum Symposium and Expo on February 5-7, 2020.
