Developing Resilience to Respond to Shocks
Climate Change and Climate Financing in Africa 

Sustainable Financing

"External sources of income and tax revenues available for development in Africa have never been higher. They have tripled in the last ten years," said the African Economic Outlook 2011 (Graph 2.1 and 2.2).  
Africa's economic performance has continued to improve and medium-term projections are more promising than ever.  The period 2002-2012 is characterized by the dynamism of economic growth in Africa, with a rate that continues to grow at a rate above 5%, higher than the population growth rate of +2.8%.  
Sub-Saharan Africa presents the profile of one of the most flourishing developing regions. The growth rate is expected to increase to 5% in 2012, 5.3% in 2013, and 5.2% in 2014 (Chart 2.3). With a per capita income in 2010 of US$1972, the standard of living is rising faster than in any other region of the world, even if significant disparities remain between African regions and that catching up with the world average (US$9903) is far from being achieved. Over 1990-2008, poverty levels declined by 2.2 per cent, the highest since the 1980s.
However, the continent's performance is tarnished by the difficulty of reaping the full benefits of high growth, due to low diversification and lack of competitiveness that make it impossible to compete with imported products.  The slow progress in democracy and the resurgence of conflicts add a negative shadow to this picture. The scourges of corruption and capital flight are still rampant and Africa seems powerless to curb them. Thus, US$700 billion evaporated between 1970-2008 blocking development efforts.  The HDI figures for the period 2000-2011 place the continent at the bottom.  Progress towards achieving the MDGs by 2015 remains mixed. As the 2015 deadline for reducing poverty and achieving the MDGs approaches, African countries face new and emerging trends that create new needs that FBCA must address.
