The African Economic Outlook 2015 analyses Africa’s growing role in the world economy and predicts the continent’s two-year prospects in crucial areas: macroeconomics, financing, trade policies and regional integration, human development, and governance. This 14th edition analyses regional development and spatial inclusion challenges faced by the continent. A section of one-page notes summarises recent economic growth, forecasts gross domestic product for 2015 and 2016, and highlights the main policy issues facing each of the 54 African countries. A statistical annex compares country-specific economic, social and political variables.

OECD Development Centre

The African Economic Outlook 2015 is the 14th edition of this annual report which results from a unique international collaboration. The African Development Bank, the OECD Development Centre and the United Nations Development Programme worked closely together to produce this report in its many forms. Over 100 researchers, economists and statisticians directly contributed their expertise. They drew data from national statistics offices, ministries, multilateral development institutions, investors, civil society and the media. CIRAD, the Agricultural Research Centre for International Development, helped draft this year’s thematic content on regional development and spatial inclusion.
