Several challenges remains to be addressed to really tape in the huge power and potential of sports for enhancing economic and social development, inclusion and empowerment, peace and tolerance, respect for other people and for the rule of law, human rights, physical and mental well-being, among others. They range from the persisting policy vacuum to the poor sports governance structures and infrastructure, from inadequate investments in sports to the poor utilization of the little resources earmarked for its development, as well as the limited recognition given by African countries to the role and potential of sports in development, including traditional sports and games.
