WITH AFRICAN MONITOR
Africa is the second fastest growing region in the world, just behind East Asia.
Despite the global economic meltdown, African economies have enjoyed a period of growth, with some economies even boasting double digit growth. This resurgence has given rise to a growing recognition of Africa as an emerging market and potential growth pole. It is imperative that this ‘moment’ be harnessed and translated into tangible development outcomes that can be felt by all citizens, particularly the grassroots populations.
GET INVOLVED WITH
African Monitor believes that a perspective of Africa’s development should emerge, where political leaders, governments, business and the citizenry at large engage in a collective effort to ensure that African grassroots populations have:
- sustainable livelihoods
- a source of income, decent jobs and access to economic assets
- access to quality services, education and health care, and
- the capabilities, freedom and means to pursue their goals in a peaceful society
