ABOUT THE PROJECT
The African Success story is a World Bank research study anchored in the Africa Region Chief Economist’s Office Unit. The project intends to document recent African success stories across a broad range of topics with a view to: (1) broaden dissemination and knowledge within the region of the remarkable transformation that is taking place in many African countries; (2) examine what has worked and why, including re-evaluating some widely accepted past successes, so as to deepen our understanding of the drivers of success in the region; and (3) draw practical lessons with a view to informing policies and interventions.
Its main goal is to promote regional learning and disseminate lessons learned with particular attention to transferability and adaptation. Read More
