The students are required to begin researching on the topic prior writing and submitting the same to their Heads of School. 
The 34th SADC Summit of Heads of State and Government deliberated and agreed that the topic for the year 2015 be: "Leveraging the Region's Diverse Resources for Sustainable Economic and Social Development through Beneficiation and Value Addition". Discuss how this would result in Sustainable Economic Development.
The following set of questions below are meant to guide students when responding to the question above. Thus, on answering the question, students should answer all the questions listed below as follows:

  2. Has the SADC Region ultimately benefited from its abundance of natural resources since the complete democratization with the fall of the Apartheid regime in South Africa in 1994?
  3. Discuss the Beneficiation and Value Addition with concrete proposals for SADC Region on ownership and processing of mineral/natural resources and how they benefited SADC citizens if at all and what can be improved to maximize benefits to the SADC citizenry?
  4. How should the SADC Region go about implementing the 34th Summit Theme in order for it to benefit the whole region including some of its Member States that might not have as much natural resources as the others?
  5. What role should be played in the operationalization of the 34th Summit Theme by non-state actors in the SADC Region, thus, private sector, Non Governmental Organizations, Traditional Authorities and Local Communities?
  6. As a secondary school learner, what do you think should be the education sector's role in the operationalization of the 34th Summit Theme to benefit the education sector in the whole region? 
Heads of schools are supposed to ensure that the students adhere to the following guidelines: 
  1. The essay should not be longer than 2000 words and not shorter than 1000 words.
  2. Where students have access to computers, they are advised to type their essays and submit both the soft and hard copies.
