Synthesis Report on the Demographic Dividend in Africa
8 May 2015

About half a century after it was established and many of its member states gained independence, the African Union’s Agenda 2063 set the stage for the continent to transform into an “integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the global arena” in the next 50 years. Agenda 2063 was formulated at a time when the continent is enjoying an economic renaissance characterised by steady economic growth over the past decade or so. African economies are projected to continue growing in future, buoyed by rapidly increasing foreign direct investment for infrastructure development, investments in the extractive industry, and impressive growth in information and communications technology.
