Africa's GDP growth is projected to accelerate to 4.0 percent in 2019 and 4.1 percent in 2020 - but improved macroeconomic and employment outcomes require industry to lead growth, according to the 2019 African Economic Outlook report. Published annually since 2003, the African Development Bank’s flagship report provides headline numbers on Africa’s economic performance and outlook.
Infrastructure Financing Trends in Africa is the Infrastructure Consortium for Africa’s flagship annual report. It provides consistent and comprehensive reporting of the mobilisation of financial resources for the development of Africa’s infrastructure, covering the continent’s energy, water & sanitation, transport and ICT sectors.
Financing Africa's infrastructure development is the special theme of the 2018 edition of the African Development Bank's "African Economic Outlook". The report highlights that Africa's infrastructure needs amount to $130–$170 billion a year, with a financing gap of $68–$108 billion. Flagging up that institutional investors manage more than $100 trillion in assets globally, the report suggests that just a small fraction of the excess global savings and low-yield resources would be enough to plug Africa’s financing gap, and finance productive and profitable infrastructure.
This OECD working paper provides a broad picture of official financial flows for infrastructure development in developing countries, by bilateral and multilateral development partners. Multilateral development banks are further examined in a special section.
