Africa is now at a crossroads and the right path, if taken, could lead the continent closer to reaching its growth and human development objectives. As one banker recently said, it is no longer a matter of "Why Africa?" but "How Africa?" Using economic policy analysis, this book examines the vision for achieving this idea of "How Africa?" through the cooperative actions of the African Union, Africa's private sector, civil society, women, and youth. It looks at the continent's progress in delivering on this vision, specifically its ability and progress in maintaining momentum, sharing the benefits of growth, and financing its development. The book also looks at risks and opportunities that are part of this vision - such as population growth, urbanization, and technological changes, and the role that countries such as the United States and China, as well as institutional and private sector partners, can play in achieving Africa's vision. --"@en ;
