Yes Africa Can

Success Stories from a Dynamic Continent

Thursday, July 7 at 12:30pm in Auditorium J1-050

The economic landscape of Sub-Saharan Africa has changed dramatically since the mid-1990s, with stagnation giving way to dynamism in a broad swath of countries. Aggregate GDP growth climbed from less than 2.5 percent in the 1990s to around six percent in 2003–07. The region has also begun to make headway on poverty reduction and on achieving the Millennium Development Goals.

Although Africa’s medium- and long-term development challenges remain large and complex, the progress underway is remarkable and undeniable, according to a new study from the World Bank’s Africa Region, Yes Africa Can: Success Stories from a Dynamic Continent.
