    So, here are some of the most innovative ideas we found that are changing the way people learn in Africa, and transforming the continent’s education landscape. Math meets Hip-Hop: Learning numbers with rap music. One of the biggest flaws in the education system is the assumption that all children learn in the same way. The AU Science, Technology and Innovation Strategy for Africa (STISA) places science, technology and innovation at the epicentre of Africa’s socio-economic development and growth and emphasises the impact the sciences can have across critical sectors such as agriculture, energy, environment, health, infrastructure development, mining, security and water among others.

      A mobile phone database for dairy farmers and a strain of sweet potato that can help fight child blindness. These are just two of the imaginative new ideas that are tackling Africa's old problems. innovation have not investigated such trajectories (see also discussion on globalisation below). • Increasingly, service-based economies call into question manufacturing-based development strategies. “Dematerialised” innovation (e.g. product design) is more relevant today for countries’ positioning in global value chains.

    Komla has written more than academic journal articles and research reports on a wide range of development related topics. He is author of Re-thinking Development in Africa: An Oral History Approach from Botoku, Rural Ghana (Langaa, ). Watch Komla talk about his book Re-thinking Development in Africa here.   South Africa urgently needs to implement programmes and strategies that will create a more inclusive economy in which the benefits of growth are shared fairly and equitably.
