Issue 55.4 | African Strategies for Transformation

Volume 55 Issue 4 | African Strategies for Transformation

Issue 55.4 was guest edited by Charles Onyango-Obbo, Executive Director, Africa and Digital media Division, Nation Media Group

There are two worlds, two narratives, two distinct ways of feeling African today in Africa: the old Africa of failures and the disappointments of recent decades with their persisting pessimism, and a new Africa seeking change, innovation and new opportunities, with a new class of young leaders in the public, private and civic sectors pushing beyond the old stereotypes and cultivating new energies and a new sense of optimism.
This issue of Development, the quarterly journal of the Society for International Development (SID) on ‘African strategies for transformation’ tries to captures the dynamic changes that African countries are undergoing right now, with all its new enthusiasm, as well as inner contradictions.
