2013: 100 Most Influential Africans

December 2013

What is influence and how do you measure it? It will always be hard to agree on a common understanding and meaning of influence. Understandably, this always generates wide debate. How do we determine these people’s influence? And why does it matter that we assemble this list, you may ask. One yardstick we used was to emphasise that influence is not about popularity and popularity is not always influential. The influencer’s impact on public, social and political discourse, however, is what largely helps us determine their influence. Over the next few pages, you will find a breadth and wealth of Africans of all nationalities and ages, both women and men, whose actions and reach, we have determined, significantly impacted and realigned the continent’s landscape in their fields of endeavour. They contributed in redefining the African narrative in 2013 and we feel they will play a big role in 2014 - hopefully, for Africa’s good.

ONE and NewAfrican Agriculture Challenge

January 2014

New African have partnered up with the advocacy group ONE to launch the Enhanced Maputo Framework Challenge. This Farmer’s Deal will provide public investments and policy reforms that will improve the agriculture system, providing crucial missing services for smallholder farmers and budding agribusiness firms. The objective is to give agriculture the place it deserves, to ensure that our leaders listen to the voices of smallholder farmers, and that they walk the talk.
