KAPSARC partners with the 10th WDA Forum

KAPSARC is co-hosting an Expert Symposium at the 10th World Demographic and Ageing (WDA) Forum, which will be held at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland on August 29-31, 2016, to address the overarching theme ’Our next World.’

The main objectives of the Expert Symposium are to present the key findings of the book “Africa’s Population: In Search of a Demographic Dividend”, and to highlight the various challenges and opportunities linked to the rapid population growth in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

KAPSARC Research Fellow Daniel Mabrey will lead the session on The Role of Energy to Unlock Africa’s Demographic Dividend, focusing on how energy resources can be leveraged in the future socio-economic development of sub-Saharan Africa.

The Forum brings together leading experts from across the globe to debate and share pressing topics such as migration, low-interest environment, economic innovations in mobility, communication, employment, and productivity gains for future competiveness.
