African Position on Youth Development

Published on


The African Union envisions and its striving for an integrated African economic social, cultural and political development agenda: A prosperous Africa at peace with itself and its partners. The New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) initiative integrated into the AUC process which makes a new beginning, aims to enable the continent to not only reduce poverty but also propel it to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The AU also aims ‘inter alia’ to enhance its leadership role for the promotion of peace, security and good governance. These and other efforts are to be driven by Africa’s own citizens, whom the AU hopes would become a healthy, skilled and dynamic force able to compete in the global marketplace.
