African countries have the youngest population in the world and the largest share of the world’s available arable land. indeed, as the Youth Division of the Africa Union Commission puts it, about 65% of the total population of Africa is below the age of 35 years and 10 million youth enter the labour market annually. The future of the continent is in the hands of the youth. They are one of the greatest assets and an inevitable force for improving the productivity and growth of all sectors of Africa’s economy. In the urban and rural areas of Africa, young people are in the majority. They are very heterogeneous and they cannot be ignored any more if we are going to achieve an Africa renaissance in the 21st century. With proper planning and well-structured social and economic policy formulation, and implementation, Africa’s youth can be mobilized to provide goods and services for the continent and for the world in general.
