2. #Africanness: Embracing our African Heritage
The African continent is endowed with immense natural and human resources. With 16% of the world’s population, it ranks highly in the quantity of world reserves of minerals like bauxite, cobalt, industrial diamond, phosphate rock and platinum group metals, and globally has 60% of unutilised farming land. Its population, the fastest growing in the world, is expected to increase from 1.2 billion people today to over 2.5 billion people by 2050 when it will continue to be the youngest in the world.
