About the product

This book is the first to examine the incidence and role of clusters as a viable and increasingly important form of industrial organization in Africa. The overall aim of the book is to improve our understanding of how local clusters can be transformed into local systems of innovation and how local clusters can be better connected to global actors. The authors draw out implications for policy and practice and provide guidance to governments, private sector associations, and non-governmental organisations.
