The fastest billion : the story behind Africa's economic revolution by Charles Robertson( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the vantage point of many in the West, Africa remains a continent of woe -- a place stalked by ethnic conflict, corrupt dictatorships, religious strife, war and famine. But today, at last, the flawed mythology that treats Africa as a homogenous disaster area is being challenged by investors, economists, fund managers and academics. Age is not often associated with speed; but Africa, the cradle of civilisation, now has more of the world's fastest-growing economies than any other. After a generation of relative stagnation in the late 20th Century, many in Africa have begun the long-awaited period of catch-up with the developed world. The bottom billion is becoming the fastest billion. This book, the work of a group of African economists and highly respected analysts from Renaissance Capital, the leading emerging markets investment bank, aims to accelerate the world's realisation that Africa has no intention of allowing the coming decades to add up to an "Asian Century". Africa's day has arrived

Nigeria's economic reforms : prospects & challenges : keynote address by Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala( Book )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Following years of economic stagnation, Nigeria embarked on a comprehensive reform program during the second term of the Obasanjo administration. The program was based on the National Economic Empowerment and Development Strategy (NEEDS) and focused on four main areas: improving the macroeconomic environment, pursuing structural reforms, strengthening public expenditure management, and implementing institutional and governance reforms. This paper reviews Nigeria's recent experience with economic reforms and outlines major policy measures that have been implemented. Although there have been notable achievements under the program, significant challenges exist, particularly in translating the benefits of reforms into welfare improvements for citizens, in improving the domestic business environment, and in extending reform policies to states and local governments." The authors argue that the reform program must be considered as 'initial steps on a long journey'; consequently, they have outlined a number of outstanding issues that need to be addressed by future Nigerian administrations
Fighting corruption is dangerous : the story behind the headlines by Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A frontline account of how to fight corruption, from Nigeria's former finance minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.0In Fighting Corruption Is Dangerous, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has written a primer for those working to root out corruption and disrupt vested interests. Drawing on her experience as Nigeria's finance minister and that of her team, she describes dangers, pitfalls, and successes in fighting corruption. She provides practical lessons learned and tells how anti-corruption advocates need to equip themselves. Okonjo-Iweala details the numerous ways in which corruption can divert resources away from development, rewarding the unscrupulous and depriving poor people of services. Okonjo-Iweala discovered just how dangerous fighting corruption could be when her 83-year-old mother was kidnapped in 2012 by forces who objected to some of the government's efforts at reforms led by Okonjo-Iweala-in particular a crackdown on fraudulent claims for oil subsidy payments, a huge drain on the country's finances. The kidnappers' first demand was that Okonjo-Iweala resign from her position on live television and leave the country. Okonjo-Iweala did not resign, her mother escaped, and the program of economic reforms continued. "Telling my story is risky," Okonjo-Iweala writes. "But not telling it is also dangerous." Her book ultimately leaves us with hope, showing that victories are possible in the fight against corruption

The enterohepatic microenvironment modulates immune responses to vaccination by Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oral vaccination induces protective immunity both systemically and at the site of infection. Live attenuated bacterial vaccine vectors with potent Toll-like receptor (TLR) ligands are attractive vessels for reliably delivering vaccine antigen to the gut. Whether TLR signaling through the adaptor molecule MyD88 is required to initiate an antibody response remains unclear. Using a novel ovalbumin (OVA)-expressing recombinant Salmonella vaccine, we demonstrated that the dependence of serum antibody responses on MyD88-mediated signaling varied with immunization route. Oral and intraperitoneal vaccination, but not subcutaneous footpad injection induced predominantly Th2 and TGF-[beta] dependent antibody isotypes in MyD88 -/- mice. Adoptively transferred, MyD88-sufficient, activated, antigen-specific CD4 + T cells accumulated in draining lymph nodes of orally vaccinated MyD88 -/- mice but failed to produce IFN-[gamma]. CD1d tetramer staining revealed that oral vaccination with Salmonella -OVA activated invariant (i)NKT cells in wild type (WT), but not MyD88 -/- mice. Anti-CD1d neutralizing antibody treatment reduced the OVA-specific serum IgG2c response in WT mice only. Our data suggest that the type of adaptive immune response generated to this live attenuated vaccine depends on MyD88-mediated signals and vaccination route. The regions where gastrointestinal helminth infection is endemic overlap with regions that house populations targeted by global health organizations for improved vaccine coverage. Moreover, some diseases remain refractory to effective vaccination, particularly within these helminth-endemic regions
