The African Report on Child Wellbeing 2018: Progress in the child-friendliness of African governments, the fifth in the series, brought to the forefront the fact that Africa is sitting on a demographic time bomb. It made the case that the rapidly increasing children and youth population is both a challenge and an opportunity for Africa. It urged African governments to go beyond the conventional box-ticking approach to child rights and commit to radical and transformative actions through massively investing in children and youth. Failure to do so, the Report warned, would exacerbate the burden of poverty and inequality and pose serious threat to peace, security and prosperity of the continent.
