Human Capital Development

The objective is to create a creative and innovative environment to sustain the ongoing development of the nation into a fully developed nation within twenty years as measured in terms of human resource competencies, manufacturing & culture exports, and economic beachheads

The principles of Human Capital development are anchored around the principles of Life-Long Education where the knowledge of the community will be constantly updated with respect to both technical and self-development and vocational skills and lifelong learning programs anchored to changing technology accessibility, and to the transfer of technology and methodology from the experienced community to the new entrants.

The strategy will have as its outcome highly skilled and educated human resources in the labor pool that can be leveraged as the catalyst for economic growth. The skills will be aligned to the Massive New Technologies and industries envisioned under the BATC commitment to make the participating countries a nation ready to achieve sustainable economic growth and becoming an economic and business hub in United Africa.

Industry Development

Localisation and Technology Transfer

Every International company participating in this development is expected to localize its main activities in year 2 of operation together with technology transfer and human capital development which will allow the increase in local employment.

Economic Core Drivers

Strategic industries will be identified and developed for each participating country. This will become the anchor industry for the country which will help to create spin-off industries.

Food Security

The food Security program aims to prepare for any shortage of food supplies due to natural disasters, military orders, etc. This program will ensure adequate food reserve and storage for the country.

Unsustainable agriculture practices are causing increasing rates of desertification. Scarce arable land in many countries limits the ability to meet demand through domestic production. In addition, increasing food imports will therefore prove critical in ensuring the country’s long-term food security. Managing the demand and supply of food with an ever-growing population is one of the crucial challenges. High population growth and prolonged life expectancy rates will put pressure on future food resources and could be vulnerable to the food crisis. Climate changes, environmental issues, and socio-economic issues are also among the major causes of the food crisis. Food Security was defined as “availability at all times of adequate food supplies of basic foodstuffs to sustain a steady expansion of food consumption and to offset fluctuations in production and prices”. Concept of Food Security: Farmer = 0.25-hectare housing land area with husbandry farms (Cattle and Goat, Poultry, Fish, Vegetables, and Fruits).
