Demographic Dividend

The Demographic Dividend (DD) Programme was conceived within the context of the discourse on the understanding of the demographic dividend as a paradigm for accelerated development and the appropriate policies and actions that should be adopted in order for countries in Africa to harness the demographic dividend. The demographic dividend refers to the accelerated economic growth that is initiated by a rapid decline in fertility and mortality that results in a change in the age structure from one dominated by child dependents to one dominated by economically productive working-age adults.  However, the dividend is not automatic or guaranteed and has to be earned by making strategic investments to improve education and skills development, health, economic reforms and job creation, and good governance and accountability. These were the ingredients for the success of the Asian Tigers who exemplify harnessing a substantial demographic dividend.
