SUMMIT MANDATE & RATIONALE

As some parts of the world are experiencing marginal increase in population growth, and others a decrease in numbers, Africa is however not following in this pattern, as the continent is now home to about 1.2 Billion people, with further projected increase in the near future, according to the United Nations Populations Division. Of this number, about 50% are between the ages of 15-24. However, though the continent is home to the world’s largest population of young people and still growing, jobs are not growing at commensurate rate. This summit therefore seeks to galvanize further conversations centered on tested strategies, policy frameworks and intentional plans aimed at creating jobs for the continent’s young people and indeed befit all society. Unemployment and poverty are two of the main factors providing ready army for terrorists, human trafficking, amongst other vices, hence the need to have this all important conversation. This summit will among other things help to shape discussions on Africa’s entrepreneurship and job prospects for the next 10 years and also expose delegates to bold ideas and initiatives that have worked.
