Worldmark Encyclopedia of National Economies - Vol. 1 - Africa
Publisher: Gale Group | 2002 | 565 pages | ISBN: 0787649554 | PDF | 13,0 mb

The ultimate aim of this resource is stated in an introductory essay written by contributor Gerald W. Fry: "It is our hope that this set will enhance both economic and geographic literacy critically needed in an increasingly interconnected world." The editors and contributors attempt to accomplish this by presenting a series of accessible articles that methodically analyze the economic structures and financial climates of 198 countries and territories.
Countries are arranged in alphabetical order within four regional volumes. The country entries have two goals: to present a clear picture of current economic conditions and to provide statistical data that will allow for comparative interpretations. Within entries, information is divided into 14 standardized subdivisions, among them a country overview; an overview of the economy; a section on politics, government, and taxation; and a section on infrastructure, power and communications. Subsequent sections treat economic sectors, agriculture, industry, services, international trade, money, poverty and wealth, working conditions, the country's history and economic development (in time-line format), and future trends.

Confronting Drought in Africa's Drylands: Opportunities for Enhancing Resilience (Africa Development Forum)

Confronting Drought in Africa's Drylands: Opportunities for Enhancing Resilience (Africa Development Forum) by Raffaello Cervigni
English | May 9, 2016 | ISBN: 1464808171 | 299 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

Drylands represent the front line in the battle for poverty eradication and resource conservation in Africa. While we know that millions of people in drylands are exposed to the threat of land degradation and periodically fall victim to droughts and other shocks, actions to address these challenges have been fragmented, too many times prompted only by humanitarian crises, and in the end largely inadequate. This book provides a solid, evidence-based assessment of the potential for the many interventions that can improve crop and livestock production and allow better stewardship of natural resources, thereby significantly lowering the numbers of people exposed to risk.
Highways to Success or Byways to Waste: Estimating the Economic Benefits of Roads in Africa (Africa Development Forum)

Highways to Success or Byways to Waste: Estimating the Economic Benefits of Roads in Africa (Africa Development Forum) by Rubaba Ali

Roads are the arteries through which the economy pulses. They connect sellers to markets, workers to jobs, students to education, and the sick to hospitals. Yet much of the developing world, Africa in particular, lacks adequate transportation infrastructure. Accordingly investments in transportation remain a cornerstone of the development agenda. Sub-Saharan Africa spends roughly $6.8 billion per year on paving roads, and the World Bank invests more on roads than on education, health, and social services combined.

Africa's Demographic Transition: Dividend or Disaster? (Africa Development Forum)

Africa's Demographic Transition: Dividend or Disaster? (Africa Development Forum) by David Canning
English | Oct. 15, 2015 | ISBN: 1464804893 | 217 Pages | PDF | 14 MB

Africa is poised on the edge of a potential takeoff to sustained economic growth. This takeoff can be abetted by a demographic dividend from the changes in population age structure. Declines in child mortality, followed by declines in fertility, produce a 'bulge' generation and a large number of working age people, giving a boost to the economy. In the short run lower fertility leads to lower youth dependency rates and greater female labor force participation outside the home. Smaller family sizes also mean more resources to invest in the health and education per child boosting worker productivity. In the long run increased life spans from health improvements mean that this large, high-earning cohort will also want to save for retirement, creating higher savings and investments, leading to further productivity gains.

The Challenge of Stability and Security in West Africa (Africa Development Forum) by Alexandre Marc

Since independence, the West African sub-region has been an arena for a number of large-scale conflicts and civil wars, as well as simmering and low-intensity uprisings. Contrary to perceptions, West Africa in its post-independence history has experienced fewer conflict events and fatalities from conflict than the other sub-regions on the continent. The turn of the millennium has witnessed the recession of large-scale and conventional conflict, and it has ushered in new and emerging threats. The specters of religious extremism, maritime piracy, and narcotics trafficking threaten to
undermine some of the progress achieved in recent years.
