Africa’s youth bulge is both a crisis and an opportunity.
By 2035, sub-Saharan Africa will have more working-age people that the rest of world’s regions combined, according to IMF forecasts. By 2055, the continent’s youth population, aged 15–24, is expected to be nearly 500 million, or more than double 2015 levels.
Sub-Saharan Africa’s informal economy, one of the largest in the world, provides a kind of cushion.
Informal employment and income provides livelihood to many people who might otherwise be jobless.
