Energy transition in Africa by Thokozani Simelane( )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The worldís demand for energy coupled with a decreasing stock and supply of fossil fuels is propelling the transition to renewable sources of energy. This global movement presents many opportunities and challenges to Africa. If Africa can identify the opportunities and start to position itself, with its abundant sources of renewable energy, it stands a chance of being a global player in the production and supply of renewable energy. Achieving this will, however, require a combination of effective planning and investment on infrastructure, skills and technology. In determining how this should b
The state of Africa 2010/11 : parameters and legacies of governance and issue areas by Korwa G Adar( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The State of Africa series project was conceived by the Africa Institute of South Africa (AISA) during its 2003ñ2004 financial year for purposes of mapping out on a regular basis critical issue areas relating to intra- and inter-African as well as extra-African relations. The first and second volumes of the series were published in 2004 and 2008 respectively. Volume 1: The State of Africa: Thematic and Factual Review served as an exploratory piece and covered a broad range of issues relating to politics and governance, millennium development goals (MDGs), peace and conflict and regional develo
Overcoming barriers to climate change adaptation implementation in Southern Africa by Lesley Masters( )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adapting to the impacts of climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing the African continent. Although initially couched as primarily an environmental challenge, its importance in the socio- economic development of the region has seen the prioritisation of adaptation in the African common position at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) climate change negotiations. This emphasis has resulted in a number of studies on the vulnerability of countries to climate change, including case studies detailing examples of adaptation in practice. Yet the understand
Green economy and climate mitigation : topics of relevance to Africa by Godwell Nhamo( )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Climate change is real and is impacting on economies and lives in Africa, especially rural livelihoods. The effects of the climate change phenomena have drawn bitter debate between both the developed and developing countries. To address some of the concerns, the authors identified topics of relevance to Africa, among them: discourses surrounding the green economy and sustainable development; financing green economies; carbon benchmarking; role of multilateral development banks in carbon financing; and carbon taxation. The book mainstreams climate change into ëunfamiliarí territories, such as a

The social contract in Africa by Sanya Osha( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book employs the event of the Arab Spring revolution of 2011 to reflect on the event itself and beyond. Some of the chapters address the colonial encounter and its lingering reverberations on the African sociopolitical landscape. Others address the aftermath of large scale societal violence and trauma that pervade the African context. The contributions indicate the range of challenges confronting African societies in the postmodern era. They also illustrate the sheer resilience and inventiveness of those societies in the face of apparently overwhelming odds. What is the nature of politica
African political elites : the search for democracy and good governance by F. O. C Nwonwu( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

African Political Elites looks at the five African countries that acted as the vanguards in creating the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) initiative: Nigeria, South Africa, Senegal, Egypt and Algeria. The leadership structures, trends in political democratisation, and prospects of continued democratic stability are examined from the perspectives of the five countries. The implications of the new political dispensation for Africa in the context of the African Union (AU), and African development through NEPAD, make up the central theme of the book. The fact that the selected countries have emerged from diverse eras of political misrule including long periods of military dictatorship, apartheid hegemony, and civilian autocracy is of significance in the new political order

The state of Africa : post-conflict reconstruction and development( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Post-conflict reconstruction is not a new phenomenon but can be linked to the Marshall Plan after the Second World War. Reconstruction efforts in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq, have seen a revival of the concept in the early 21st century. In Africa, post-conflict reconstruction has become more prominent as a result of the peace processes in the DRC, Sudan, Burundi and the Comoros. As a result, the African Union and NEPAD have formulated policy frameworks to deal with post conflict reconstruction and development. As part of the UN's reform, its new Peacebuilding Commission is another institution which takes responsibility for post-conflict reconstruction. This publication focuses on a number of themes including, gender and post-conflict reconstruction, the transformation of war economies into peace economies, elections in Africa in the context of post conflict reconstruction, constitutional negotiations and power-sharing arrangements, and the predicament of ethnic identities in the DRC. The NEPAD framework is also analysed in detail. All of these themes serve as indicators for Africa of the lessons to be learnt from the post-conflict reconstruction processes already in progress

Millennium development goals : achievements and prospects of meeting the targets in Africa by F. O. C Nwonwu( )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reviews the progress, prospects and challenges of meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Africa. Each chapter corresponds with one of the eight goals of the Millennium Declaration. The introduction sets the stage for the discourse contained in the main text while the conclusion forms an opinion from the findings and prescribes the way forward. The goals, in sequence, include: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger -- Achieve universal primary education -- Promote gender equality and empower women -- Reduce child mortality -- Improve maternal health -- Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases -- Ensure environmental sustainability -- Develop a global partnership for development. While it is apparent that most North African countries are on track to achieve the above goals by 2015, few countries in sub-Saharan Africa are expected to succeed in this. As well as reviewing progress towards meeting the Millennium Development Goals, the authors also analyse the obstacles and challenges that stand in the way of achieving the goals. These include internal, economic and cultural obstacles as well as external and environmental factors such as reductions in funding, problems in accessing global markets and the implications for Africa of climate change
