Young people in Africa are an enormous resource for the continent’s developments. It is in this regard that African Union Heads of State and Government declared the theme for 2017 as ‘Harnessing the Demographic Dividend through Investments in Youth’.
The AU ECHO provides a platform for the 54 Member States of the African Union, and African citizens to profile the successes of Africa, and to impart knowledge and experiences born from African led initiatives, based in the instruments and decisions of the African Union. It is published on an annual basis by the Directorate of Information and Communication (DIC) of the AUC, with a key focus on content aligned to the AU’s Theme of the Year.
The scope of the 2017 edition of the AU ECHO calls for evidence based articles on the progress that has been achieved as well as innovative initiatives that are being undertaken at institutional, country and continental level, with regard to harnessing the demographic dividend through investment in the youth, guided by the relevant AU frameworks.
