Africa in 2015

Africa heat map in 2015

Despite Africa's growing economy, and an anticipated fall in African poverty rates, we estimate there will be 36 million more Africans will be living in poverty in 2015 - as population growth is set to outpace the poverty alleviation effects of a stronger African economy.

Without any economic growth, the situation would be even worse - a completely stagnant African economy would result in 83 million more Africans living in poverty by 2015.
