Since 2000, Africa’s economies vigorously expanded, maintaining an annual average economic growth rate of 5% or more. However, Africa’s economies have need new dynamism to respond to global competition, but also a strategy that will enhance structural transformation and socio-economic achievement beyond the MDGs, particularly within the context of the Post-2015 development framework and which will include a wide range of development solutions around issues such food and energy security, and enhance service delivery and social inclusion. Africa must work on securing social and political stability and build effective economic governance. This must take the form of a concerted effort in order to enhance national and regional capacity for successful and sustainable development – creating a society that can deal with questions of agency and political economy for quality service delivery, social inclusion and democratic accountability. Africa must build knowledge, leverage finance, and implement effective development oriented programmes.

Keywords:   structural transformation, mdgs, service delivery, social inclusion, agency, political economy
