Unemployment, education top list of Africans’ problems, priorities

Africans’ most urgent problem is unemployment, and their top priority for more government investment is education, according to Afrobarometer’s latest round of surveys across Africa.

Survey findings published today (17 December 2015) in the report: “Where to start? Aligning sustainable development goals with citizen priorities”, detail the views of about 48,000 citizens in 32 African countries regarding their most important problems and their priorities for additional government spending.

These insights into citizens’ priorities are particularly significant as political leaders and activists debate policy agendas and development investments in light of the new 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
