Project Partners

  • The African Union Commission (AUC) Department of Social Affairs
  • The UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) Social Development Policy Division

The working group, a partnership initiative of APHRC, the African Union Department of Social Affairs and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa Social Development Policy Division, brings together 17 relevant experts and role players from academia, civil society and policy, spanning the fields of development, youth, ageing, demography, economics and ageing. The Working Group has sought to develop incisive conceptual thinking supported by relevant evidence on a potential relevance of Africa’s older population to the realization of a demographic dividend in the region – and potential approaches to harnessing it.
