ShieldAfrica, solutions for the future of Africa

Before being in a position to undertake its economic expansion, Africa must confront the different threats targeting it. The security of the populations is an essential challenge for lasting growth.


“Protecting the development of Africa”, that is the aim of the ShieldAfrica exhibition/trade fair, dedicated to Security and Defence on the African continent.


Since its creation in 2013, this exhibition/trade fair has revealed the importance of security for the future of Africa and is generating increased interest from public institutions and also private bodies.


To meet the security challenges of the African continent that are preventing its development, the main actions to be implemented are:

  • Ensure the security necessary for economic growth
  • Restore or maintain peace
  • Prevent and combat natural and industrial disasters
  • Develop the necessary services for institutional players and private operators

All these actions will enable Africa to develop both in the field of security and in its economy.


This fifth edition is being held in Abidjan from 21 to 24 January with its theme being the protection and control of borders.


The programme includes:

  • 21 January: ShieldAfrica plenary conference
  • From 22 to 24 January: Exhibition/trade fair and exhibitor conferences
