African Development Report

Despite earlier periods of limited growth, African economies have grown substantially over the past decade. However, poverty and inequality reduction has remained less responsive to growth successes across the continent. How does growth affect poverty and inequality?

This 2015 edition of the African Development Report (ADR) offers analysis, synthesis and recommendations that are relevant to these questions.
