The African Economic Outlook (AEO) presents the current state of economic and social development in Africa and projects the outlook for the coming two years. The AEO is a product of collaborative work by three international partners: the African Development Bank, the OECD Development Centre and the United Nations Development Programme.
The website provides comprehensive and comparable data and analysis of 54 African economies. An international team of researchers, economists, statisticians and other experts analyse economic, social and political statistics and present them in a format accessible to the public. The report is supported by recent available data drawn from several sources: national statistics offices, ministries, multilateral development institutions, investors, civil society and the media.
AfricanEconomicOutlook.org is the only resource on Africa which employs a cross-country, macro-economic framework, allowing for comparative analysis both over time and across countries. It also undertakes in-depth studies of sectors critical for the continent’s development. Beyond the country outlooks, you will find important resources such as ongoing research, news and events.
