Investing in Tomorrow’s Labour Force
Socioeconomic implications of the demographic transition in Zanzibar
To reap the full benefits of the demographic transition and meet its goal of becoming an upper-middle-income country by 2050, the Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar will be required to make significant public investments in education, health, infrastructure and social development.
The report, Investing in Tomorrow’s Labour Force: Socioeconomic implications of the demographic transition in Zanzibar, determines how much investment would be required to meet these targets. In doing so, it illustrates key challenges and emerging opportunities to promote inclusive growth and economic transformation by investing in Zanzibar's growing child population and its future transition to the labour market.
