Abstract

The concept of demographic dividend is well-known. But in order to reap this opportunity and to prevent the demographic dividend from turning into a demographic nightmare, it is necessary to equip the population in the younger age-groups with good education, health and skills. This requires not only educational, health-related and skill- development facilities, but also enabling all social classes to avail themselves of these facilities by the removal of all obstacles that block these facilities from reaching deprived social classes.
