List of Blog4dev 2020 winners: World Bank Africa

Launched in 2014 by the World Bank, the Blog4Dev competition is an annual writing contest, inviting young people (aged 18-28) to weigh in on a topic critical to the country’s economic development. The competition is a way to engage Africa’s youth and provide a platform to share their views—and solutions—about development topics that are important to them
