What stops Africa, with its abundant natural resources, from capitalising on its boundless potential? Well-known Africa analyst Jakkie Cilliers uses 11 scenarios to unpack, in concrete terms, how the continent can ignite a growth revolution that will take millions out of poverty and into employment.

Africa urgently needs much more rapid economic growth. Cilliers identifi es and models fundamental transitions required in agriculture, education, demographics, manufacturing and governance and shows how these changes can be brought about.

The challenges the continent faces – competing in a globalised world, delivering health care and education, feeding growing populations and grappling with climate change – demand far-sighted policies and determined leadership. Cilliers offers achievable solutions based on African realities.

Authoritative and engaging, this work offers a roadmap for how Africa can catch up with the rest of the world.
