Summary "With the deadline of the Millennium Development Goals approaching, governments are considering the main elements for a global development policy reference system after 2015. Adapting insights from the scenario analysis tradition, the contributors identify six major underlying causes of change and key uncertainties affecting Africa's development prospects. The drivers of change considered vital in shaping Africa's future include demography, climate change, technology and innovation, domestic political development, new actors in international development, and global governance. The book outlines several generalized scenarios for the continent's future and discusses the implications of the changing African development context for the priorities and organization of European development cooperation."--Publisher
