Social Development

Africa’s steady economic growth and positive socio economic indicators are yet to translate into benefits and opportunities for all men and women on the continent. Persistent inequality, poverty and inequity in access to social services and economic opportunities, particularly for youth, the aged, persons with disabilities and women, are creating deficits in human development, and slowing progress towards achieving development and democracy goals. Member States must develop and implement progressive social policies and practices to address this challenge.
