viangMichel Nguele Viang, President of the Cameroon Chess Federation has produced an interesting brochure (in French) - à la découverte du jeu d'échecs - which is intended primarily for the francophone countries in Africa. It is available as a free download (896kb) here.

Michel takes the unusual and important angle of concentrating on the value of chess, especially in schools, as a tool for the economic and social development of the African continent.

Le présent mémo a été écrit à l’intention des décideurs nationaux et continentaux africains des organisations publiques, afin de leur montrer le caractère stratégique du jeu d’échecs comme outil efficace d’aide au développement économique et social du continent.

It is on pp15-17 that he draws on the work of Lynn and Vanhanen, IQ and the Wealth of Nations (2002) to demonstrate the gap to be bridged across Africa. The rest of the brochure is largely about how this might be done.
