Editorial Reviews

From the Author

This book seeks to answer a prevailing question in the minds of researchers,practicing development economist and policy makers, climate scientists,political scientists, diplomats, politicians, ordinary private citizens - abouthow Africa can pull itself out of the paradox of desperate lack amidst plenty,under the cloud of the changing climate; and what each can do. The book fills in "gaps," in the conflicting narratives peddled about thecontinent - from the year 2000s declaration of Africa as a "hopeless continent"to the counter narrative of a "rising Africa" just 10 years later - to thecurrent seeming silence about the continent. The style used in writing makesfor an easy interesting read as well.
 
"Making Africa Work Through the Power ofInnovative Volunteerism" hopes to inspire readers especially the youth to takeaction by using their skills, talents, ongoing initiatives and networks to getto work transforming Africa's socioeconomic fortunes under the changingclimate. 

From the Back Cover

While Africa has long been referred to as the "dark continent," it's shown itself to be a bearer of light to the world. Leaders such as the late former president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, former United Nations Secretary General Kofi  Annan, Nobel laureates Wangari Maathai and Desmond Tutu, and others have inspired the world with their words and actions. But more work needs to be done. Richard Munang outlines practical policies that countries in Africa should take to accelerate socio-economic transformation and achieve ideals of sustainable development goals. He highlights how the pace of economic development in Africa has lagged other nations with fewer natural resources--and what we can do about it. Unlike other books, this one presents a novel strategic approach to building an economy that can thrive amid climate change. Th e paradigm he proposes incentivizes actions that stem climate change's most harmful eff ects. Find out how climate change can be a master key that unlocks the door to accelerated socio-economic transformation in Africa, and how it applies to development economists, politicians, and everyday people with the insights in Making Africa Work through the Power of Innovative Volunteerism.
