Africa Conference on Development Journalism (ACDJ) is an Annual Media Conference, organized by Africa Media Development Foundation (AMDF), to serve as an avenue for exchange of ideas in addressing current and emerging issues facing Development Journalism.
The conference is also meant to create a community of learning that will support the growth of Development Journalism in Africa.
In 2017, Africa Media Development Foundation (AMDF) held its first Conference tagged MediaAfrica Conference and the theme was "Role of Media in Curbing Maternal Death".
The aim was for practising journalists to meet with industry players, interact, learn and reshape their skills.
In 2018, the conference focused on “Africa's Rising Population: Media as a tool for Harnessing Demographic Dividends". It was based on the fact that despite the rise in population in African nations, the continent continued to lag behind on development indicators.
In 2019, the conference was repackaged and renamed Africa Conference on Development Journalism. The theme for 2019 is ‘Advancing Development Journalism Towards Attaining Sustainable Development Goals: Inspire. Innovate. Evolve’.
