Nigeria The Next Generation Report
AbstractThe Next Generation Task Force was convened to explore Nigeria's future at a time of rapid demographic, social, and economic change. Over the next 20 years, Nigeria will experience huge growth in the number of young adults in its society. If these young people are healthy, well educated, and find productive employment, they could boost the country's economy and reinvigorate it culturally and politically. If not, they could be a force for instability and social unrest. The Task Force report is intended to catalyse a broader debate on Nigeria's future â€“ and especially the needs of its young people. The next generation is beginning to find its voice. If Nigeria can harness its ideas and energy, then its future will surely be bright.
