image of Economic Report on Africa 2010

The report focuses on how the recent global economic downfalls have compounded the unemployment rates in most African countries, thus also hindering real economic growth. Organized into two sections, ERA 2010 dissects the current unemployment trajectory citing both macro and microeconomic contributing factors. Additionally, the publication stresses on establishing the current economic climate as a learning tool for developing a comprehensive development planning framework.



Selected current and emerging development issues for Africa in 2009

There are many economic and social development challenges that face Africa today, including marginalization from globalization, development financing, and climate change. Weak governance and poor leadership persist in many countries. Conflict and post-conflict reconstruction challenges prevail in some countries and regions though on a lower scale, hampering development efforts. Unemployment, the issue of focus in this report, and endemic poverty, stand out as major long-term development issues for the continent to address.
