Yes Africa Can - Success Stories Summaries

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

The project is anchored by the Africa Region’s Chief Economist’s Office and led by Punam Chuhan-Pole (Lead Economist, Task Team Leader). Africa Region staff provides inputs at various stages of the project, including in selecting case studies, developing case studies, and providing guidance to case study authors. The work is carried out under the guidance of Shanta Devarajan, Chief Economist of the Africa Region with contributions from other institutes such as the AfDB, AERC and the IMF.
