Africa’s youth population is growing rapidly and is expected to double to over 830 million by 2050. This increase in working age population presents an opportunity to boost productivity and facilitate inclusive growth across the continent. However, much of this demographic dividend remains largely untapped. Despite having 10-12 million youth who enter the workforce every year, only around 3 million formal jobs are created annually in Africa.
