The message is clear. We must put young people first if we are to harness the demographic dividend, build resilience and transform our region to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and the Africa We Want.Having helped secure political will in 2016, UNFPA in WCAR intends to secure resources, advance partnerships and fully promote, support and implement interventions that put young people first in 2017 and the years ahead. We will continue to advocate for all those young men and women whose social and economic rights are denied, and wherever we see successes, we will work to replicate them. We intend to deliver a region where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and the potential of every young person is fulfilled.

This working document, drawn up on the basis of the World Bank report, focuses on Africa and more specifically West and Central Africa, and gives an overview of the efforts required in this part of the world with regard to a ‘catching-up’ strategy to stop it lagging further, the key development stakes and challenges it faces. It also underlines Africa’s comparative advantage compared to other regions of the world in terms of its large demographic potential. The document underlines the persistence of poverty in this part of the world, the poor access to basic social services, the low level of education especially for young girls, levels of maternal mortality which are amongst the highest in the world, the persistence of gender-based violence, the difficulties of professional integration for young people. But in order to meet the challenges, there needs to be increased political commitment at the highest level, an increase in financial resources, and the general participation of all (both the public and private sectors) via strong strategic partnerships at the global, regional and national level.

Ce document de travail, élaboré sur la base du rapport de la Banque mondiale, met l’accent sur l’Afrique et plus particulièrement l’Afrique de l’Ouest et du Centre, et donne un aperçu des efforts à accomplir dans cette partie du monde au regard du retard accusé, des grands enjeux et défis en matière de développement auxquels elle est confrontée. Il met également en exergue l’avantage comparatif de l’Afrique par rapport aux autres régions du monde relatif à son grand potentiel démographique. Le document souligne la persistance de la pauvreté dans cette partie du monde, le faible accès aux services sociaux de base, le faible niveau d’éducation surtout chez les jeunes filles, le niveau de mortalité maternelle parmi les plus élevés au monde, la persistance des violences basées sur le genre, les difficultés d’insertion professionnelle chez les jeunes. Mais, le relèvement de ces défis passe nécessairement par le renforcement de l’engagement politique de haut niveau, l’accroissement des ressources financières, et la participation générale de tous (secteur public et privé) à travers des partenariats stratégiques très forts, à la fois au niveau global, régional et national.
