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 country experiences from Africa

High, sustained, and employment-generating growth rates, combined with equitable income distribution, are necessary for growth to lead to significant poverty reduction. To achieve high rates of growth, there has to be better understanding of how growth occurs and what are the success factors in the countries that have recorded significant growth levels and poverty reduction in the last few decades. Analysis in the 2010 ERA has so far focused on Africa as a whole.
