Africa: Development Challenges and Possibilities
Africa: Development Challenges and Possibilities examines the positive achievements that are being experienced on the continent. In examining Africa’s development paradoxes, one can point to any number of examples illustrating challenges facing the people on the continent. However, there are now many examples of real progress on the ground such as: increase in life expectancy; decreasing infant mortality rates and death rates; and increase in Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and GDP per capita. The book examines the impact of Islam and Christianity in Africa; population growth, environment and the challenge to food production; the impact of the African diaspora; and the role of the African Union in Africa’s development.
