The »Compact with Africa« (CWA) – an initiative within the G20’s finance track – is a key pillar of the G20 Africa Partnership. In its resolution – adopted by G20 finance ministers and central bank governors in Baden-Baden on March 17-18, 2017 — the G20 has acknowledged its special responsibility to join forces in tackling the challenges facing the world’s poorest countries, especially in Africa. Notwithstanding that declaration, the CWA gives little attention to the specificities of the many low-income countries on the African continent.
