Quantifying the impact of illicit financial flows on sustainable development

This chapter explores the potential relationship between IFFs, structural transformation and sustainable development. It examines how IFFs may be negatively associated with productivity increases across sectors and highlights the role of institutions in channelling such effects. Over the past decade, in most countries in Africa, productivity increases have been low, despite relatively high economic growth rates. The findings indicate how curbing IFFs could contribute to achieving higher levels of economic productivity (target 8.2), supporting productive capacities (target 8.3) and improving resource efficiency (target 8.4) in Africa.
