SA Driving African Growth - UN

Although Africa has made huge strides in increasing human development in the past decade, gains could easily be reversed should ‘significant progress’ not be made in halting global warming, warns UN

The United Nations (UN) says that although Africa has made huge strides in increasing human development in the past decade, gains could - with hundreds of millions of people being pushed into extreme poverty - easily be reversed should ‘significant progress’ not be made in halting global warming.

In its 2013 UN Human Development Report titled ‘The Rise of the South’, the UN differentiates between developed countries like the United States, Britain and Germany - as the north - and developing countries like China, Brazil, India and sub-Saharan Africa as the South.

On telecommunications, the report notes that the ‘spectacular increase’ in phone connectivity in Africa has been driven almost entirely by companies based in India, South Africa and the United Arab Emirates.
