Africa Progress Report 2012 - Jobs, Justice and Equity - Seizing Opportunities in Times of Global Change

Published on


The 2012 Africa Progress Report, launched by the Africa Progress Panel, warns that Africa’s strong economic growth trajectory - which will see the region increase the pace of growth well beyond 5 per cent over the next two years - is at risk because of rising inequality and the marginalisation of whole sections of society. Kofi Annan, Chair of the Africa Progress Panel, states in the report that, “Disparities in basic life-chances - for health, education and participation in society - are preventing millions of Africans from realizing their potential, holding back social and economic progress in the process.”
