About the product
The Economic Report on Africa 2003 is the fourth in an annual series that reviews the continent’s economic performance and near-term prospects. This year’s report builds on the work of the three previous reports by laying out an agenda for Africa based on systematic benchmarking of economic performance. It also studies the impact of the drought, AIDS and political and armed conflict on the economies of various African nations and goes on to identify policies that are best catalysts for sustained growth and development. New in this year’s report is an in-depth country analysis of seven African nations showing the relationship between poverty and agroclimatic conditions.
