Making Africa work : a handbook for economic success by Greg Mills( Book )

12 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the next generation, Sub-Saharan Africa faces three big, inter-related challenges. Its population will double to 2 billion by 2045. By then, more than half of Africans will be living in cities. And this group of mostly young people will be connected with each other and the world through mobile devices. Properly planned for and harnessed, this situation is a tremendously positive force for change. But without economic growth and jobs, it could prove a political and social catastrophe. With these population increases, old systems of patronage and of muddling through will no longer work. Instead, if leaders want to remain in power, they will have to find a more dynamic means of promoting growth. A first-hand account of a rapidly changing region, Making Africa Work is a handbook for ensuring growth beyond commodities and creating jobs across the continent. --

Burundi on the brink, 1993-95 : a UN special envoy reflects on preventive diplomacy by Ahmedou Ould Abdallah( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ambassador Ould-Abdallah arrived in Burundi with a mandate from the United Nations to rescue the country's fledgling democracy and bring together political and ethnic rivals. His original mandate was for three months; he stayed two years. When he left, Burundi was by no means tranquil, but his efforts to foster political power sharing and to rein in extremism had helped to avert all-out civil war and to save Burundi from the genocidal fate of neighboring Rwanda. In Burundi on the Brink, Ould-Abdallah pulls no punches as he describes the challenges he faced - not only from Burundians but also from members of the international community. He is equally revealing about how he sought to boost the limited leverage available to a UN special envoy by bold action, personal example, and close coordination with the local, diplomatic and NGO communities. The volume concludes with an analysis of what Burundi tells us about what does and what doesn't work in the practical realm of preventive diplomacy."--Jacket

The Challenges of agricultural production and food security in Africa by Africa Leadership Forum( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The agricultural and rural crisis besetting Africa is the result of both policy failures and inadequacies and the product of structural rigidities inhibiting access to and control of vital resources. The challenge of leadership in the agricultural sector is how to design and implement policies which would help induce growth and development in this sector. It is against this background that the Africa Leadership Forum convened in Ota, Ogun State, Nigeria in July of 1989 to explore a broad range of parameters to be addressed in the formulation of successful policies. This volume is derived fr

Democracy works : turning politics to Africa's advantage by Greg Mills( Book )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Democracy Works asks how we can learn to nurture, deepen and consolidate democracy in Africa. By analysing transitions within and beyond the continent, the authors identify a 'democratic playbook' robust enough to withstand threats to free and fair elections. However, substantive democracy demands more than just regular polls. It is fundamentally about the inner workings of institutions, the rule of law, separation of powers, checks and balances, and leadership in government and civil society. It is also about values and the welfare and well-being of its citizens, and demands local leadership with a plan for the country beyond simply winning the popular vote. This volume addresses the political, economic and extreme demographic challenges that African countries face. It is intended as a resource for members of civil society and as a guide for all who seek to enjoy the political and development benefits of democracy in the world's poorest continent. Finally, it is for donors and external actors who have to face critical decision - especially after ill-fated electoral interventions such as Kenya 2017 - about the future of observer missions and aid promoting democracy and good governance"--Inside front flap
African development, African transformation : how institutions shape development strategy by Landry Signé( )

7 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Africa is home to many of the world's fastest-growing economies. This powerful book traces new continental institutions for development and their capacity to affect economic growth, regional integration, and international cooperation in Africa. It also assesses Africa's ability to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and the African Union's Agenda 2063. As the continent's most ambitious development initiative since independence, the African Union Development Agency (or AUDA, previously known as the New Partnership for Africa's Development or NEPAD) provides an excellent case study for examining how an African-based, continent-wide development institution emerged. Inspired by the ideas of Pan-Africanism and the African Renaissance, NEPAD was created to bring Africa into the globalizing world, to close the gap between developing and developed countries, to enhance economic growth, and to eradicate poverty. Almost two decades after NEPAD's creation and it was given its transformation into AUDA, this brilliant book examines its role in achieving these goals

The Asian aspiration : why and how Africa should emulate Asia - and what it should avoid by Greg Mills( )

6 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1960, the GDP per capita of South East Asian countries was nearly half of that of Africa. By 1986 the gap had closed and today the trend is reversed, with more than half of the world's poorest now living in sub Saharan Africa. Why has Asia developed while Africa lagged? The Asian Aspiration chronicles the stories of explosive growth and changing fortunes: the leaders, events and policy choices that lifted a billion people out of abject poverty within a single generation, the largest such shift in human history. The relevance of Asia's example comes as Africa is facing a population boom, which can either lead to crisis or prosperity, and as Asia is again transforming, this time out of low-cost manufacturing into hi-tech, leaving a void that is Africa's for the taking. Far from the optimistic determinism of "Africa Rising," this book calls for unprecedented pragmatism in the pursuit of African success. -- Publisher's description

L'Afrique à l'heure des choix : manifeste pour des solutions panafricaines by Ibrahim Assane Mayaki( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in French and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Si la dernière décennie de croissance a vu naître le concept très à la mode d'afro-optimisme, on ne peut éluder le fait que l'Afrique abrite toujours près de 400 millions de personnes vivant dans une extrême pauvreté et qu'elle ne compte que très peu dans l'économie mondiale. Ce livre s'adresse aux jeunes générations qui, dans dix ans, gouverneront l'Afrique. Face aux défis de la globalisation, du changement climatique et de la pression démographique, Ibrahim Assane Mayaki donne les clés aux futurs dirigeants pour bâtir une unité panafricaine, renforcer les institutions et réussir la juste intégration du continent dans la mondialisation."--Back cover
