Deconstructing the Youth Development Agenda: Putting Young Women First | INCLUDE Platform

My contribution to Dutch Foreign Policy formulation in (West) Africa.

“There are no singular straightforward answers but first we do need to understand what we are dealing with. Much of (West) Africa’s problems are what we call “wicked problems” – they are ingrained, systemic and multi-faceted. You do not solve “wicked problems”, you “re-solve” them – like the onion, you get to the problem by peeling one layer at a time. By trying to reach the core in one attempt you create more problems – hence the challenge faced in the development discourse in (West) Africa.”
