Understanding Africa and understanding the whole context surrounding the crisis the continent has been through for decades is crucial to decipher the problem of African poverty. From the origins of poverty, to colonization, corruption, tribes and ethnic issues, living standards in Africa, the impact of globalization and international aid. Africa is the most ethnically diverse continent and also the poorest.
Within the framework of the Second Industrial Development Decade for Africa (1991-2000), the UN General Assembly, in 1989, proclaimed 20 November Africa Industrialization Day (resolution 44/237).
The Day is intended to mobilize the commitment of the international community to the industrialization of Africa.
The important contribution of inclusive and sustainable industrialization in helping Africa to overcome its critical development challenges is clearly recognized in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Sustainable Development Goal 9 calls to build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.
