According to the World Economic Forum’s Human Capital Index – Sub-Saharan Africa currently only captures 55% of its human capital potential, compared to a global average of 65%. With more than 60% of its population under the age of 25, Sub-Saharan Africa is the world’s youngest region.

The same repot projects that by 2030, the continent’s working-age population will increase by two-thirds, from 370 million adults in 2010 to
over 600 million in 2030.
