Africa is coming .Who is ready to welcome ?
Dierector of Hydropolitics Academy of Turkey
Giulio Meotti, Italian journalist and author pointed out an important issue in his last article about demographic pressure which comes from Africa to Europe(1).
According to the UN Projection ,during the next thirty years, the population of Africa is expected to increase by one billion.Global population growth is slowing, but Africa and Asia will still see a large population expansion. As a whole, the world population is growing older. Ageing is now also accelerating in low-income countries, where the process tends to start earlier and is becoming more pronounced in rural areas
Should these population projections materialize, the increases could seriously jeopardize the overall development prospects of these countries.Rapid population growth changes the population structure, with younger generations making up an increasing share of the overall population.
Between 2015 and 2050, in low- and middle-income countries, the number of people between 15 and 24 years of age is expected to rise from about 1 billion to 1.2 billion. Most of these young people are expected to live in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, particularly in rural areas, where jobs will likely to be difficult to find.
Without sufficient employment opportunities, this population trend may lead to a more rapid rate of outmigration. The impacts of outmigration are already being felt in some emigration destinations, not only at the national level, but also abroad, notably in Europe and high-income countries in other regions.In this article we try to highlighted the most applicable and right approach to the problem.
