    This is a very interesting and appropriate topic at this time when many African countries are faced with the challenge of a youth bulge and the the socio-economic implications it comes with. I would like to be part of this exchange of ideas, experiences and good practices since my country Uganda is facing the same challenges. I request that I get registered both as a participant and a presenter of a paper that shares my country’s experience in setting the stage for harnessing Uganda’s Demographic Dividend.
