Sub-Saharan Africa

Sub-Saharan Africa is the location of the most heavily populated countries on the African continent, countries with the world’s youngest population, countries rich in natural and human resources, countries full of motivation, immense potential and enormous innovative strength.

Sub-Saharan Africa is home to cutting-edge infrastructures such as solar power plants, internationally renowned astronomical research, state bio-economic strategies, globally linked biomedical research, distinguished university structures, new trading markets and much more.

However, these achievements are offset by frequent difficulties with access to food, unreliable energy supplies in many areas,  crumbling healthcare systems and employment markets that cannot sustain the workforce in the long term or only have limited opportunities for successfully trained, highly educated citizens. These cultural and social imbalances destabilise societies and create conflict, of which sub-Saharan Africa has plenty of examples.
