Special Theme: Sustainable Cities and Structural Transformation
African Development Bank, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), 2016
The African Economic Outlook (AEO) analyses the present state of affairs in Africa, provides two-year forecasts and addresses a special theme, supporting all with extensive data. The five chapters in Part I cover economic and social aspects of the continent and allude to this year’s theme: sustainable cities and structural transformation. Part II’s three chapters concentrate solely on the theme, building on analysis from the African Economic Outlook 2015: Regional Development and Spatial Inclusion. Country notes on each of Africa’s 54 countries constitute Part III.
