Promoting Economic Development in Africa

UNCTAD examines African economic development from global context, builds consensus at the international level on the challenges facing the African countries, and assists in the mobilization of international support measures to promote economic development in Africa.

Despite impressive growth, African countries continue to grapple with the challenges of poverty, unemployment, inequality, commodity dependence and environmental degradation.

UNCTAD assists African countries in addressing these development challenges through research and policy analysis, capacity development, advisory services, and consensus building.

UNCTAD collaborates with leading African institutions such as the African Union, the Economic Commission for Africa, the African Development Bank and the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD)
