Multinational - System of indicators to monitor Regional Integration in Africa (Africa Regional Integration Index (ARII) and Africa Visa Openness Index (AVOI)) - Project Completion Report (PCR)
Measuring regional integration matters for Africa’s development, whether in the area of trade, infrastructure, production, talent mobility or capital. Yet, progress on integration across the continent has been difficult to evaluate and monitor against agreed goals and plans. Tracking what is happening on the ground, region-by-region, by monitoring the flow of goods, production or movement of people is as important as looking at policy frameworks or agreements.
The Africa Regional Integration Index (RI) and the Africa Visa Openness Index (AVOI) aim to fill this important data gap. Both initiatives are implemented in collaboration with the United Nations Economic Commission and the African Union Commission.
