Where growth can be found in Africa? Les Mensuelles Ifri/Entreprises


A luncheon debate with Alain ANTIL, Researcher, Head of the Subsaharian Africa Programme.

To speak of Africa as a growth source is fashionable. Looking at it more closely, growth is in reality very badly geographically dispatched.

Growth remains often confined in prosperity enclaves: large cities, sea shores, direct environments of mining or oil sites, rural areas well connected to road networks and market towns. Those enclaves are located in the middle of territoires of deprivation, abandonned by public authorities. In other words, growth cannot be considered without taking in account the territorial fragmentation, and its impacts in terms of risks.

Chair: Thomas GOMART, Vice President for Strategic Development


These luncheons are exlusively dedicated to corporate members and individual benefactors. By personal invitation.
