Ensuring quality education is the best and Sustainable Development Goal and future.
Plenty has been done to build and implement effective high education strategies in both developed and developing countries but the process is far from complete. With the new challenges posing uncertainty for the future of young people, governments, universities, the private sector and partners are to be aware of the issues and design new approaches to regain momentum.
High education training is a highly critical issue for the overall situation, for example, in Africa, primarily noting that the low level of human capital in all sectors is a major impediment to growth, poverty reduction and food security throughout the continent. Yet the same issue underlines that African leaders now regard high education as capable of driving overall economic development (with 32% of GDP and 65% of employment attributable to science sector), and are thus pressing for a radically new approach to higher education, as the current system is disconnected from the labour market.
To this end, the university environment in Africa has to be improved markedly in the next 10 years, Intellectual investment in universities has again to become attractive for African states.
The problem is that, the ongoing dearth of links between universities and the private sector, are discouraging, but the current initiatives like agricultural incubation programmes are heading in the right direction, in Africa.
