The World of 7 Billion, What challenges will young African's face?

Thursday, October 27, 2011
Connect African Development Blog is currently running a short survey online on the State of the World Population Report - SWOP 2011. We are asking, with the World of 7 Billion, what challenges will young African's face? The survey will support content for our "unofficial youth supplement" to the report, which we will release as an article on the Blog on 2nd November 2011. 

As a contribution to the Report and work of UNFPA, and to help further understand the scope of the challenges young people may face, please take the time to respond to this short survey.

You can access the survey here: SURVEY LINK - CLICK HERE or click on the main post image above or on the right top side of the Blog (on the image of the SWOP 2011 Cover).

We look forward to hearing from you and reading your ideas.

  1. I think constitutional monarchies would benefit the development of many countries in Africa.
    They way I see it there is a need for a non party political international representation of many African countries. A Constitutional monarchy (or limited monarchy) is a form of government in which a monarch acts as head of state within the guidelines of a constitution.
    This form of government differs from absolute monarchy in which an absolute monarch serves as the source of power in the state and is not legally bound by any constitution and has the powers to regulate his or her respective government. Most constitutional monarchies employ a parliamentary system in which the monarch may have strictly ceremonial duties or may have reserve powers, depending on the constitution. For development It is important with a sense of continuity, independent of what political party is elected. A constitutional monarch could serve that purposes of continuity, and also be able to act as an international non political ambassador for the country.
    I believe this would benefit trade, commerce and investment for many African countries. Also the monarch in his ceremonial duties would be able to create a sense of national belonging for the people, and act as a unifying symbol above party politics.
