RUSI MEMBERS ONLY: Making Africa Work - A Handbook for Economic Success

Released in May 2017, Making Africa Work – A handbook for economic success has been authored by the former President of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo, who serves as Chairman of the Brenthurst Foundation’s Advisory Board, alongside Drs Jeffrey Herbst and Greg Mills, and Major General (Rtd) Dickie Davis.

The handbook tackles some of the biggest challenges to face the next generation, including the anticipated doubling of sub-Saharan Africa’s population within the next generation, the shift from rural to urban and the impact of a young demographic with improved digital access through phones and Internet. The driving force behind the book is the shared belief of the authors that properly harnessed and planned for these challenges can become a positive force for change, but that equally failure to do so could prove disastrous.

Subjects from people and cities to infrastructure, agriculture and mining are examined in detail. Each chapter hones in on a separate area analysing the challenges, zooming in on relevant case studies from across the globe, and most importantly of all, weighing up the potential actions for maximising economic growth and development opportunities.
