Africa as an emerging continent

The booming economies accompanied with technological development, particularly in the fields of agriculture and irrigation, will allow the birthplace of humanity to sustain a larger and larger population, possibly reaching 1.5 to 2 billion people. Moreover, as the growth engine of the planet, significantly larger and well-spent aids and investments from developed and possibly many developing countries will be sent in order to provide Africans with basic education, thus allowing Africa to develop a powerful IT industry thanks to the abundance of intellectuals. As one of the largest markets on the planet, thanks to the need for consumer goods as well as massive production of IT products, such as software and hardware programs and applications that would promote valuable assistance for a variety of industries, Africa appears to hold a bright future, and even though it might not exceed the wealth and position of strength of the already existing powers like the EU, the People's Republic of China and the USA, the status quo of the continent can be seen as rising, Africa having a mentionable effect on the future of the entire globe.

Marriette Deckard Given that Africa will likely face the brunt of climate change, it will quickly adopt infrastructures that will allow it to adapt as well as rapid technology transfers from the developed world as happened during the 1960's Green Revolution. Africa is one of the few continents where population growth will continue to increase versus every other region and along with that comes a younger population more dynamic and ready to embrace emerging technologies and social trends. Africa right now is developing at a vertiginous pace and is slated to easily begin catching up to other regions within the next 2-3 decades. Technologies if quickly deployed could potentially accelerate this trend. 14 Mar 2019
