Africa: African Union pushes for resilient education systems

by admin

It will be the year of education so that in Africa efforts for better education are intensified and related programs are accelerated. This is the appeal that emerged over the weekend on the occasion of the 37th ordinary summit of the Assembly of the African Union (AU).

“Building resilient education systems to increase access to inclusive, lifelong, quality and relevant learning in Africa” was the theme around which the Assembly moved.

During the opening session, Azali Assoumani, president of the Comoros and outgoing president of the AU (he was later replaced by the president of Mauritania) underlined the crucial need to intensify efforts to promote continental stability and development.

“With particular interest in promoting and maintaining peace and security on our continent, this shared concern for security has guided all our activities during our mandate. The peace of our continent remains the very basis for realizing our vision by 2063 for a united and prosperous Africa,” Assoumani said.

The President of the AU Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, in turn underlined the need for AU member states to collectively address the incessant challenges that endanger Africa’s development aspirations: “Our main challenges have not lost importance. Peace, political and institutional instability, climate change, deficiencies in economic governance, poverty, marginalization of women and youth in development and leadership processes in our political and social system remain our main sources of concern,” said Faki.
