Africa will be home to much of world’s population growth in coming decades, giving it a young, growing, and increasingly urbanized population. At the same time, it faces economic challenges and will acutely feel the effects of a changing climate. The discussion will explore what these demographic and environmental dynamics, alongside the promise of advancing technologies and new means of communications, will mean for governance and development across the continent.
The Hoover Institution hosted a public panel discussion "Africa in an Emerging World" on Monday, January 14, 2019 from 4:00pm - 5:15pm PST. The event was Livestreamed and can be viewed here.
