Recall that the African Development Bank Group launched the 2022 African Economic Outlook during its Annual Meetings in May in Accra, Ghana.
The AEO 2022 highlights climate change as a growing threat to lives and livelihoods in Africa and ties in with the United Nations Climate Conference, COP 27, the “African COP,” which Egypt will host in November.
The African Development Bank plans to share the report’s findings with a variety of stakeholders in Africa, Europe, and the United States.
The African Economic Outlook is published annually. It is a tool for economic intelligence, policy dialogue, and operational effectiveness, and provides compelling up-to-date evidence and analytics to inform and support Africa’s decision-makers.
