Agenda Africa 2063 is an attainable ideal

One thing is certain in 2015: Africa is rapidly changing and developing and very promising prospects are opening up to the continent. It is enjoying a significant growth rate even though it is not in a position to resolve the problems of poverty for the majority and youth unemployment on its own. Other interesting findings include the facts that conflicts are on the decline and governance is generally improving. In addition there is a positive revival of private foreign investment and an improvement in the African capacity to develop major structural projects. Against such a background, would Africa be tempted, with its “Agenda 2063” proposed by the African Union (AU), to construct its own historic narrative that does not reflect its immediate realities? Is it reasonable for a whole continent, confronted by serious problems related to its stability and the transformation of its growth into sustainable development, to determine an “intergenerational” timeframe? In other words, surely the choice to adopt a plan for 54 states spanning a  period of  over fifty  years must be  something of   an unattainable dream, a utopian ideal?
