Concept Note

The world economic meltdown has affected Africa as much as many of the developed countries. South Africa and many countries on the east coast of Africa had shown robust economic growth of about 6%. However, declining foreign exports and foreign investments have had a deleterious effect. These countries have also to withstand the effect of climate change which has a serious impact on agricultural growth, health, etc,. As compared to the developed West, Asian countries especially
China and India have withstood the effects of the worldwide recession much better. In this situation, greater south – south co-operation is the need of the hour.
India has had historic relations with African countries specially Ethiopia, and the countries on the Horn (Somalia, Ethiopia) and the east coast. India attaches great importance to Africa, not only for historic reasons, but also for its potential for growth. Unlike some of the former colonial powers which were more interested in extractive industries, India emphasizes capacity building, strengthening indigenous entrepreneurship, and local institutions with which India has rich experience. There is rapid growth of urbanization in Africa, with 30% people living in towns. This is expected to grow to 50% by 2020, and will need growing demand for energy including new sources. In this field also, India has rich experience
In order to chart out new paths of growth and partnerships with South and East Africa – countries abutting on the Western Indian Ocean, the Society for Indian Ocean Studies is planning the above seminar in association with Nehru Memorial Museum & Library and the African Studies Association of India (ASA) located in Jawaharlal Nehru University.
