AFRICA IN FOCUS>>Coming up on 24 June, 2014: "African Problems? African Solutions?"

African problems? African solutions!

The 24 June edition of AIF runs at variance to the other editions in the sense that we are doing this show under one assumption: that the challenges bedeviling Africa are not going to go away any time soon. And so, because of this, we are compelled to look at some of the solutions that already exist.

Whether it is in the challenge of combating drug trafficking in the sub-region; controlling our external borders; or the private sector examining concrete solutions to facilitate trade in the sub-region, the bottom line is that we have answers and solutions under our noses.

Same can be said about our agriculture, and how many young people can be more active and proactive in that sector. We couple this with the fact that the AU is celebrating a year-long anniversary for Agriculture (a major talking point at the AU Summit underway in Maputo, Equatorial Guinea). We are happy to also announce that we will be having updates of the summit live from an AU Commission official at the Summit there.

Each of my guests in the show all serve as components to addressing some of Africa’s problems:

Guests are:

Ø  Stella Attakpah, Programmes Manager at GIABA – the Dakar-based Ecowas agency concerned with combating money-laundering and financing of terrorism; (from Bamako)
