Development Challenges in Africa Towards 2050

This report lays out a broad Africa 2050 scenario in which Africa catches up (or converges) with the rest of the world to narrow the gap in terms of living standards and productivity. It describes a future for Africa of individual prosperity in cohesive societies, competitive economies, and strong regional-global interaction.

Under such a scenario, by 2050 per capita incomes would grow six-fold, moving from one quarter of the global average to one half. The number of poor would be reduced ten-fold to fewer than 50 million. The majority of Africans would join the middle class. Africa’s share of global GDP would triple to 9 percent.

This is a vision of what could be but it is not a prediction. It is only one of several possible scenarios and actions taken today will be key to determining which is realized.
