WEEKLY READINGS


Week 5 Dec 2019

Africa’s growing markets show great potential for transforming their production systems. Africa’s gross domestic product (GDP) has grown by 4.6% annually since 2000, the second fastest rate in the world. Its domestic demand accounts for 69% of this growth performance and has shifted towards more processed goods. The African Continental Free Trade Area raises new hopes of creating a pan-African market for the continent’s industrialisation. Many local firms are seizing these opportunities to grow in size and productivity. But productive transformation is not spreading, especially where needed in employment-intensive sectors.

Week 28 Nov 2019

This report revisits the challenges and opportunities to tackle Africa’s poverty, drawing on the latest evidence. It focuses on the income opportunities of the poor, the policies needed to support these opportunities, and the resources needed to finance pro-poor investments.
