As Africa continues in the quest to leverage the potential of our youth population and harness a demographic dividend (DD), youth need to be active participants in these efforts.
In celebrating this year’s youth month and International Youth Day, the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) Alumni Chapter of Kenya and the African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) are hosting a conversation on “Youth Engagement in Africa’s Demographic Dividend Agenda”.
The webinar will feature experts from various disciplines working to strengthen the role of youth in Africa’s development context.
- What the demographic dividend (DD) is and why youth are a critical stakeholder?
- How can youth contribute to program and policy level investments in driving efforts towards a DD in Africa?
- How can youth effectively engage with policymakers to advocate for key investments?
- How can youth work to address governance challenges that are a major impediment to harnessing a DD in Africa?
