All through the past seven editions, starting in 1993, the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD) debates and agendas for action have been guided by two pillar principles, those of Ownership and Partnership. The COVID-19 pandemic, however, has dramatically illustrated the importance of solidarity. Thus, Human Solidarity could well be adopted by TICAD 8 as a third pillar to complement and consolidate the current two pillars of Ownership and Partnership. This new pillar would link back to the concept of Human Security proposed to the UN in 1999 by Japan and made relevant anew by the COVID-19 pandemic. It would also link back to the UN Resolution 56/207 of the 57th UN GA of 2001 relative to the proposition of a World Solidarity Fund made by Tunisia in 2001.
