Demographic Dividend Programme Brochure
3 March 2016

The demographic dividend programme, initiated in 2013, was set up within the context of the discourse on the rapid increase of the population of young people in Africa, and whether this presents an opportunity for accelerated socio-economic development in Africa. The project carries out analytical studies in African countries that have expressed interest in conducting analyses that will help them to better understand their potential to harness the demographic dividend and identify priority policy actions to be implemented to reach this goal. The project also undertakes advocacy engagements at national and regional levels to promote greater understanding of demographic dividend paradigm and to galvanise commitment from governments and other stakeholders to invest in policy actions that will accelerate harnessing the demographic dividend in Africa.
