Abstract

This volume provides possible pathways Africa can consider in its quest to eradicate poverty through enhanced food nutrition, food security, energy, and gender equity. Focusing on these human challenges does not overlook Africa's grand challenge of silencing the guns by 2020, particularly as the decision to do so - and a related action plan - were undertaken in 2013 during the African Union's fiftieth anniversary celebration. The 430th meeting of the Peace and Security Council, held in April 2014, sought to mobilise member states and African Union partners toward achieving this target. For this reason the 2020 theme for AU has been dedicated to silencing the guns so as to create conditions that are conducive to Africa's development.
